Victory :)

So the health care bill passed last night. This was a day we had been praying for for some time now. My husband was diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic a couple months before our wedding. Its odd to be diagnosed as a type 1 as an adult- usually children are diagnosed with it and they grow up with it. Its really scary to me to think he may have gone a very long time without knowing. Thankfully we had insurance through work when he was diagnosed so he has been covered. Its amazing for us to see how much money we would be shelling out if we had no insurance. This has really put a halt on us selling our house and moving to NYC, since his diabetes would become a "pre-existing condition" and IF we could even get him covered, it would be an exorbitant amount of money. I hope and pray that now this will allow us the freedom to move and get new job without his health weighing so heavily on us. The bonus was- yesterday was his birthday :)

Also my first attempt at making fried chicken- his request for his birthday dinner- and it turned out fabulous! With green beans, mashed potatoes and goulash (mac and tomato and beef like nanny used to make). I was very proud and so was he.
