Thanks everyone for all of the support. I talked to my attorney tonight and found out that the VA rep that was at the hearing in PA blatantly lied to the judge. Now the last time I checked, that was illegal so it might be time to go another step.
So anyway, he told the judge repeatedly that I could file an appeal because they were still forcing Kevin to hire a fiduciary, but it turns out that you cannot file an appeal. Once the VA takes the money - there's nothing you can do. He had to know it too - he is in a supervisory position at the Fiduciary Unit in Pittsburgh. Crooked...crooked...crooked!
And today I talked with more congressmen/women liaisons. It's very time consuming and I have manged to make more than a few phone calls, but I have still more to go. As to the media? It's next on my list. If any of you have friends in that industry - feel free to send them my way.
So anyway, Kevin did really well at therapy again today. He is making it the full two hours pretty steady now. I asked the therapists to introduce a normal cane to him (instead of that bulky quad cane he has used all along) and so far he is not open to it. He never is though, but once he sees it's less weight and is also easy to use I expect he will do fine with it. He just has to adapt to new things.
And now I am going to bed. I didn't sleep a wink last night and my eyeballs hurt.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
