Update on Buck's wife


Berta

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

from Buck:

"She has Double Pneaumonia  and her lungs are both filled  as they hope the antionbiotics /durritics start to work she been under the ventilator noe 3 days.  with no sign of improvement  so prayers are certainly welcome.

I can go up there and see her but she is sleep and unresponsevive  its sad to see her this way, she was tested 3 times for covid and was all negitive..Thank God,

Dr's say she should start showing improvment soon if not they are going to try some other type of antibiotics,,,,we'll see

she was scheduled fore her gallbaldder today 9/16/21   but thats all canceled   they did remove her drain bag and tubes  MRI shows no infection in her gallbladder  and its of normal size and the Dr said she can have that surgery at a later date  right now they care concerend about the pneaumonia."

It is good news that the gallblader infection i gone.But this is a very serious situation.

They need many prayers and her doctors should be prayed for too. A friend of mine (Veteran)was in critical condition the last 2 weeks with pneumonia but the doctors are trying a different antibiotic on him, and the news yesterday was that he was imroving a lot.

I get the pneumonia shot every year but I understand it does not prevent some types of pneumonia. Still it is protection from some of it- and I ALWAYS get the Flu shot-(but I did get the 4th Quadrant of flu a year ago- that the flu shot did not protect us from.

I have a few friends who refuse the COVID Vaccine. Covid is still in this area of NY. They stay at home most of the time.

Thanks everyone

I do need to call my R.O. in Waco Tx  and let them know,,,about this   so they won't keep sending me over payment as my dependent and the 160.000 month she was getting for A&A.

I'm not sure what her dependent pay is? its not very much  `75...maybe 200.00 monthly it should nt be over 460.00 monthly.   plus I need to call SSA. 

THIS IS ALL INEED TO LET SOMETHING LIKE THIS SLIP BY and they send me a big bill of over payment.

anybody know  if I can just call my R.O. or send in a form #?

Buck I think I can speak for all: our thoughts and prayers are with you two. You comeback when you think it is what you want to do again. God bless

Buck, again , very sorry to hear your bad news.

I don't know but just call Peggy, 800-827-1000. They certainly should know the process. SAs for her A&A, I'm thinking that based on  your 100% rating, her monthly A&A would be somewhere around $175.00.

HI Buck,

I do think that you can change the info on the Vet.gov site for dependent information. SSA will want paperwork to prove you don't need to get paid. You will probably be wise to send them a certificate with return receipt to document it.

Condolences.
