My feelings too. I don't need the hassle of applying for a waiver if she gets turned around, to say nothing of the heartache it would cause her and the kids if they were all expecting to see one another. Just thought I'd ask in case I was being paranoid...

Yep. It's not going to be funny. She'll have some savings when she sells her house which will help when the inevitable rainy day comes. Cost of healthcare? Frightening. Giving your mum a break and making it possible for her to watch her grandkids grow up? Priceless.

This is a lady who's been a giver all her life. This is a lady who spent the last two decades, come rain, hail, or shine (and mostly it was freezing rain) selling bacon sarnies to truckers from a trailer on the side of a road. She deserves a little more than growing old alone...

Hi,

Is your Mum going to be living with you all ?
Good Luck.
Hopefully the sale of her house will help with Money and her pension from the Uk might cover Health Insurance.
Then i guess the best bet is for her to become a citizen after 5 years and then she can pay for medicare, still expensive but we all need something.

Take care.

Some states (Illinois for example) have programs where if you can't get insurance, and are a USC or legal permanent resident, you can buy the insurance from the state. Approx 1.3 times the cost of the average private insurer. Also works if you could get insurance, but it'll cost more than the above.

I don't know if the states you and Scarlett are in have such a program, but there could be a program in existance. Apparently, a lot of people are unaware of them.
