I thought I would be out of debt approximately 1 month from now. However, I don't think it is going to work out quite that way.
I went to bed Monday evening and woke up about 1am Tuesday morning, having trouble getting a breath. I got out of bed, used my inhaler, sat in a chair so I was upright, and waited. Around 4am, I was still having trouble, so decided I would go to urgent care. They ended up admitting me to the hospital; I was discharged yesterday.
It turns out that my blood pressure had gone really high, causing problems for my heart and my lungs had filled with fluid. I am seeing a cardiologist and I am now on quite a mix of medications which are keeping my blood pressure where it should be. I do have a good insurance plan, so while I am expecting some medical bills to pay, I am not expecting that they will be catastrophically large. Still, I will make no more additional principal payments until the medical bills have all been received and paid.
I had a Dr. appointment this morning and am home taking it easy now. I will go back to work Monday.
I have not yet heard a thing from the local water district.
