10/12/18 08:02 am - [info]digitalwave - Supernatural 14.01 AVI & MKV Upload...

Guys, I'm so sorry! I did this post last night and then fell asleep before posting it. I promise to do better next week. No AVI file yet but I do have both the the MP4 and the MKV files to tide you over for now.

So, what did you think? I liked it and am looking forward to seeing where they take things this season. Did you like it, hate it, somewhere in between? Let me know in the comments. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's response. :)

The file's almost finished uploading. Once it's done, just follow the links below and then click to download. As soon as I have the avi I'll get it posted, too.

Supernatural 14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land MP4 File

I didn't get much sleep last night, hence the spaciness. I've got a big bag of stuff to take to Clothes Mentor to try and sell today, wish me luck!. We could sure use the extra cash right now. Lee has to go to Statewide IT Conference in Bloomington next week for Mon thru Wednesday. Which means two nights of lodging we can ill afford. We'll be reimbursed for the expense but that does us no good for covering it up front.

Sure hope that everyone is doing okay. Again, I'm so sorry about the delay posting the eppy. :)

*hugs you hard*

10/10/18 05:01 pm - [info]digitalwave - Just keeps climbing...

Our bill with Norton's jumped from $549.23 to $728.09 just today. I checked because I got a notice that more claims had cleared through Anthem. The scariest part is knowing that they're not finished filing claims so I know that there's more to come.

I've been taking pictures to get more jewelry posted to sell. It's hard because my hands have been pretty painful so I'm having to work in short bursts but, I'll get there. I'll be going through fannish stuff and my comics as I can to get them posted for sale, too.

Quick question, has anyone here ever had any experience with Fundrazr? I thought about maybe posting something there. I've never done anything like that or GoFundme before. Mainly because I know that GoFundme is tightly tied into Facebook and I'd rather not have it show up there. Lee has co-workers, and family, on his feed that he'd rather not know how hard we've been hit by all this medical stuff. I understand and support him in that. I don't think that Fundrazr is set up quite the same.

To end on a fun note, new Supernatural tomorrow night! As always, I'll upload the episode to share as soon as I can. Most of the older eps I've posted before are still active, just check under the category Media stuff if there's something you need. :)

*hugs*

10/8/18 06:59 pm - [info]digitalwave - Want to know what a little over a week in TCU costs in the US?

The claim for Lee's hospital stay is finally working its way through Anthem. The grand total, not including doc visits, is $54,990.98! The, hopefully, good news is that, because it was what they call a Life or Death stay, we MAY not have any co-pay for the hospital part of the bill, we should know soon.

That doesn't cover the cost of all the docs he saw, we'll have to pay the co-pays for them. That cost is at $549.23, and climbing. That's on top of the $1874.28 we owe for the two IV Iron infusions he had just before his hospital stay. Plus, there's still the $500 GLA wants to even set up a payment plan for the older $6100 we already owed Nortons. Once that $500 is paid, I'll owe them $156 a month for three years to get that paid off.

I'll still need $420 to get my tablet back from the pawn shop. I used the money I got from them to pay the $300 co-pay for the Upper and Lower GI studies that landed Lee in the hospital. I could only pay the $70 interest payment this month. I'm hoping I can save enough to redeem it before my forfeiture date, which is 11/26/18.

That means that I, realistically, need to raise at least $3343.51 to get back my tablet, pay for the infusions, the doc visits from Lee's time in the hospital and the $500 down payment GLA wants. I'm going to be selling my jewelry stock, my comics, whatever I need to, to get there.

Hope that you guys can forgive me doing lots of for sale lists for the foreseeable future. In addition, I've just done something I never thought I'd do, I've added PayPal Donate buttons on both my LJ and DW profile pages. On top of what I can make selling stuff, anything else I can raise would be a huge help.

I'm happy to work for any donations. I can do editing, Photoshop photo clean up, etc. I can even do product photography to help you sell your own stuff. If you would like to help, but don't want to use something like a donate button, my PayPal addy is bstaton @ iglou.com, without the spaces. Payments sent to Friends and Family would do the same thing.

You don't know how much I hate to even ask, but these are pretty scary times for us right now.

*hugs*
