Just too much going on financially this year, and now my 3-year-old needs oral surgery to remove one of her front teeth. She banged her mouth on the hardwood floor back in September, the tooth died, and now it''s begun to abcess. Gotta have it removed. That''s going to be at least a $2,500 bill (and that''s just the deductible portion). Her father has not exactly been helping out with medical bills, so I know this is going to have to come out of my pocket. There goes any money for a deposit on a rental so we can move in together, and forget about a $$$$$ wedding!

Ugh.

So sorry to hear about that. I stress about where I am going to come up with the money for a wedding because I will be the one footing the bill. It will happen though. :) I hope your little one recovers soon!

One day at a time, honey! One day at a time. Ruby will be fine, but it''s just a matter of paying off the bill when it comes.

Oh no...that''s not good. I hope you little girl is better soon.

The wedding will be even more worth while when it finally happens.

I''m so sorry to hear about that! Its been such a rough year for so many.
Any chance you guys could have some kind of small private ceremony to make it legal and then have something bigger and fancier when there''s more money?

Yes, my daughters are Ruby (3) and Kimberly (almost 9...means diamond). My daughters are my gems!


I also have two sons.

I think we may wind up doing that, and not tell anyone in the family we got married. It would be for the benefits.

Melissa -- I''m so sorry to hear this! I hope you find a way to get married sooner rather than later, with your loved ones in attendance.

As one who broke three teeth as a youngster, I had to smile (and wince) when I read about the "why." Best wished for your little girl!

I''m sorry to hear about your little one. I hope she gets well soon. I am so glad we have the NHS over here. It would be awful to have a big bill like that to worry about.

What a bummer!

We actually have a lot in common though.
1. My son fell at Legoland and lost a tooth when he was 18 months. It turned black and they had to pull the root

2. Ruby is the name I was going to use for my last baby (if I ever have it) b/c it was my Grandfather''s name. His name was Rubin and my Grandma called him Ruby.
3. One of our first dates was at Cafe Reggio

I hope things start looking up for you

Wink since you are not married yet and you have 4 kids, look into seeing if the hospital offers financial assistance, they might do things on a sliding scale and can offer you a discount. Also you could apply for Medical Assistance for them since they are minors.

Something to look into.

Sorry to hear about your wedding being postponed!!

Sorry to hear that your wedding will be postponed (unless you secretly get married). Hope your Ruby will be ok and those medical bills get paid, honey. Take care.

Melissa,

I hope your little Ruby feels better soon.

I''m sorry to hear about your wedding plans. Sometimes, when you have to put things off for a little while, even better things are waiting in the wings.

Take care...

I'm so sorry Winks! It seems such a shame to have to postpone your wedding.


I'm glad your bub will be okay.
