    I read the entire article, and it is truly a sad situation, to say the least. In any event, my heart and prayers to out to you and your husband. KEEP THE FIGHT UP, AND DON'T BACK DOWN. It is truly worth it in the long run.

    I can truly relate, for I went through something similar with Worker's Comp, but it took finding the right attorney who was willing to fight for my benefits. Fortunately, it was just months, not years, but the outcome kept me from losing everything I owned. Good Luck and God Bless.
