Thursday May 26th UPDATE: I heard from disability and they have approved it. It does not give me enough to live on though so now I pretty much have to wait until they start sending the cheques and then go and see a worker and see where this puts me. One move step done, one day at a time.
I went today to see the doctor who did the banding. He is very nice and said that the varices were large. Something about the machine holding 7 bands and he did three of the varices with 2 each and then the 4th one he did a single band. He says I have to have it done again. I asked how often and he said until they are all gone. I asked if they would ever be all gone and he said yes, we are going to obliterate them! So I have to go for another endoscopy on the 7th of July.
I'm still waiting to hear on the federal disability. The provincial one turned me down as I don't need a "device" (wheel chair, walker etc) or an aid to help me through the day. They are the ones that made me apply for the provincial one and I didn't want to because I didn't think I fit the criteria and I guess I don't.
Other than that not too much new. Just waiting, waiting and more waiting.
