You'll never believe what he did

For some of you loyal readers this won't seem like such a big deal. But to others who know V. personally this is HUGE!!!

This weekend, without my knowledge, V. put into action "Operation: At Any Cost". I was asked by some if I knew what this was. I thought it could be a few things but not what it turned out to be. I thought that he was going through with selling his beloved truck. Everyone knows how much he loves that truck and for him to part with it would truly be a sacrifice. However, that wasn't it. (LB, better sit down if you're reading this.) He made arrangements to meet his cousin R. He explains what we're doing and that we're aware of the medical risks and such (she's a nurse. I guess he also explained our financial situation and then he asked her for some help in securing financing. Just last week I found a company that finances medical procedures not covered under health plans (mostly plastic surgery) and they include fertility treatments AND my clinic was one of their listed doctors.

Some of you may not think this is a big deal asking family for help. Normally we'd agree with you, but that depends on who you are asking. In this case, this is a big deal.

So, she says yes and he says he'd email her the link to the finance company and the clinic we're using and apply online. That way we'd know right away. Well, they did that this morning and unfortunately, it's a no go. She's not going to be able to help us out which is a real bummer. So now, we move on to the next thing. Stay tuned...

Just to do some quick backfilling. The reason this is such a huge deal in our parts is because there is MUCH history between R. and I. If ever there was a person listed multiple times on the "hell no, anyone but her" list, R. was it. However, this is no longer about pride or ego or anything small and petty.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. As Malclom X once proclaimed "by any means necessary". Material things, as coveted as they are, are simply that; material. As such, unless they are limited edition, extremely rare and/or no long produced, they are in fact replaceable. As such, whatever needs to end up on the block, should it come to that, will be on the block.

The problem is never what are we going to sell. Rather, it is almost always, can we get enough for that item for it to make sense to sell it. Anyhow, that is the last resort so we will not think about that just yet except to know that it can happen and will if necessary.

Right now, we are on to Plan B & C. Wish us luck. :)
