  1. Here and accounted for. Leaving in two weeks for Madison for the lung transplant. We are getting everything lined up, auto pays, horses, kids are going to stay in our house because the water pipes are broke in theirs. Doctors say one lung and I can't wait. Get rid of these oxygen tanks that I have carried around for 4 years. Maybe now I can start to enjoy time with my family while I can.
  2. Flatbroke still here. Had a scare this week. Had to go to Columbia, MO Monday. Thought that I might be headed to Madison for the lung transplant. After x-rays and PFT found out I had pneumonia and was given good antibiotics and already starting to feel and breath better. Happy New Year to all.
  3. Just back from Madison, my "numbers" have not changed in six months, so I am still good to go. When my numbers go down or crash I will go in for Lung Transplant. Until then live the good life with people who love you.
  4. Flatbroke, still here and sitting on my back porch drinking coffee and watching the deer in my pasture.
  5. Busy weekend and lots of company. 4 wheeling, BBQ, and messing with the horses.
  6. Hope this is in the right Forum My attorney just emailed me an article in a news letter he receives. The article is in the "Missouri Lawyers Weekly" issue July 29, 2013. It is about an attorney working Pro Bono for a Missouri Navy veteran (blue water) that had written a letter to his Missouri congressman back in 1983 and which functioned as acclaim. The attorney managed to get the veteran back pay to 1983 for his back. Then with the help of a scientist managed to prove that the plumes from the Mekong River surrounded the Perry and the throat cancer the vet suffered from, was AO connected and in total got the veteran $250,000.00. And remember the attorney was working Pro Bono. The vet got it all. I would include copies from the article but they are awful dark. You might be able to pull the newsletter up and read it online. If this helps one more Vet Good if it helps a whole ship load GREAT. FlatBroke Semper Fi
  7. Still here, resting and preparing to go again
  8. Here and still taking my time buying a newer vehicle.
  9. Thanks all The money hit the bank, now to settle down and enjoy life for a while. Maybe even go fishing.
  10. The brown envelope has arrived. Butchc130 you were correct they dated me back to July of 2011. No money in the bank yet but its coming. They raised my feet to 30% even though I did not ask for that and then said that my claim for IU was moot since I am now rated at 100%. And the verifications on Ebenifits says my disability is considered permanent and I and not scheduled for future examinations. Both our vehicles are thirteen years old. So not a new one but maybe 2008 to 2010 if we can find a decent car and truck (in Missouri a truck is a necessity on the farm). Thanks to all for the advise and help and just reading posts to get info. I filed without a VSO or attorney just from what I got on HADIT.
  11. Thanks all for the support and help along the way. Just checked payment history and nothing yet. I know it will get here but the waiting sometimes is just as hard I think.
  12. Ebenifits says 100% and Peggy hints yes but waiting on Brown Envelope. AB8 letter states back to 12-1-2012 even though my claim was filed May of 2011. Waiting to see what letter says.
  13. Still here Still counting
  14. Well got my answer today from the Federal Appeals Court and it wernt good. They decided that they, the Appeals Court did not have Jurisdiction to decide my case. So my case was dismissed. Case 12-7136 Document 43-2 dated 5/22/2013 My attorneys said that they are not going to quit unless I want to and I aint quitting. Only three pages so short read. So ticked off I cant see straight. Going to go cool off for awhile.

    May Roll Call

    Flatbroke here, Been busy- we buried my mother in law on the second. She had lung cancer, and a couple of other conditions. Then my attorneys had my hearing in Washington D.C. Waiting on the Judges to make their decision. And my wife's mare (notice I said my wife's mare) is going to foal in the next few days so I just noticed I had not paid attention to the roll call. I know push ups forever.
