A set back.

Recormon shot - done.
Flu shot - done.
2 hours at the doctors - done.
Prescription - done.

It was a good day.

We've been home for, I kid you not, 20 minutes and the phone rings. It was the Opthomologist who has been avid about getting the eye surgery funded. She rallied the group of doctors who were willing to do the surgery pro-bono. All of that fell through today and it's not going to happen because the Hawkes Bay District Health Board won't allow it. It will set a bad precedent.

<> How humanitarian of them. < / sarcasm >

I'm afraid the hole we're in fell by a few more feet.

The scenario that's playing in my head is this.

Immigration receives the residency application, call the local district health board to liaison. His records are bought up and everything that goes with it, including the subsidized prescriptions he's not supposed to be receiving, the lab work we've never been charged for, the dialysis he doesn't qualify for and now the fight his Opthomologist fought for only to have declined today. It's an instant no instead of a marinating maybe. This may have hurt our residency application more than his health has.

I may be overstating things, but if you had the day that I did you would too.

Just from donations alone, we have enough to cover the eye surgeries (excluding cataracts) he needs. We very much so appreciate the out pour from the LightWave community.

George Michael was right. You gotta have faith.
I need all the faith of the world right now, which weighs 6.6 sextillion tonnes and is 8000 miles in diameter.
