With all of the excitement, however has come a rather large pile of expenses. While it is very nice to have Aren out of the hospital, the down side is that we now have to pay for all of his medications. While a $15 co-pay may not seem like too much, once you multiply it by the fifteen prescriptions that need to be filled each month, it starts to add up to a rather large chunk of cash. That, of course, isn’t even factoring in office visit co-pays or rent (which we’ve not had to pay until this month, either).
Between rent and medical bills, we have decided that if we are going to make it at all, I would need to take a second job. The combination of flexibility and tips led me to moonlighting as a delivery driver for Domino’s Pizza. We’re hoping that an additional $50-$100 each week will help us pull through here.
Aren, however, is still trying to work all of this out. A few days ago, he approached MaryBeth with a thoughtful, if slightly puzzled, expression on his face.
“Okay, let me get this straight.”
MaryBeth took a couple of deep breaths.
“So, my dad found us a new house to live in?”
“And… I get to go home after Christmas?”
“And… my dad is DELIVERING PIZZA FOR DOMINO'S?!?!”
Aren’s eyes got very wide. He jumped up, throwing his arms around MaryBeth. “It’s like all my dreams are coming true!”
Set your sights high, that’s what I always say.
