Ephesians 3:20 "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"

So as you all are aware I a appealed the 'overpayment' on Caleb's SSI payments. Well the overpayment was filed on November 2nd and I have got nothing but the run-around from our local office in regards to the Waiver. Also since Caleb's SSI payments are temporarily stopped he has lost his Medicaid insurance which in turn prevents Caleb seeing the Oculoplastic Surgeon regarding his eyes. His Medicaid could be reinstated if the local SSI office would fax, like they told me they were going to do twice, a letter to the Medicaid office stating the Waiver is in process. But why should I count on them to do their jobs?!? It is ridiculous the incorrect information I have been given by them, along with the promises phone call returns. I have contacted the national number when the local office two weeks ago told me they couldn't find the Waiver, however the national number told me they found it right away. The national number then told me they would contact the local office immediately and in that email would tell them to contact me ASAP as this was emergent. Guess what, no phone call back. The national number told me today to go to another local office. I then said 'so since our local office can't get things done I will have to drive my disabled child to another office further away so his case can be taken care of?!?' She said 'yes, and contact your congressman' I think that is ridiculous that the national number needs to suggest that in order for things to be addressed. I have had to contact our Governor and congressmen in the past for things to be taken care of. Absolutely ridiculous. The Waiver appeal has to be decided upon in 90 days. Well lets see, I filed it on November 2nd and as of last week they couldn't find it and today the national number told me there is no progress on the appeal. I wonder if one of the local office personnel had a disabled child would they be sitting on their hands like this?!? What a bunch of incompetent idiots. Sorry for the rambling, I am just so upset and disgusted!

Please pray for Caleb that this gets resolved, so he can see his surgeon and get his eyes fixed and to continue to receive his SSI disability payments and get his insurance reinstated.

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!
