A Wrinkle in My Debt Payoff Plan

March 12th, 2021 at 07:46 pm

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.

    That is so scary Petunia! Glad the worst is over, hopefully it can be managed well now with new medications

    Oh, my! Glad you didn't hesitate and received medical care. You'll get the debt paid down, just maybe not when you first expected. Take good care of yourself!
