I have two sons. Aged 21 and 25. They were both diagnosed with juvenile diabetes when they were 5 and 7 years old.
Neither one is working a full time job presently. They work part-time but are looking for full time. They both live with their father. I had an annulment 12 years ago. They chose to live with their father because he is much more lenient than I am. I really want them to live with me because I feel they are not working up to their potential. But that's not the main problem.
Neither one has insurance. They had it while growing up, but now they are older and do not have it. Their father lost his job-so he doesn't have it either.
I give $40.00 per week to the church. I work full time and know this is something which I gladly do!! God has given so much to me. But I'm very worried about my two sons. They don't go the the Dr. since they don't have insurance. They are supposed to go the endocrinologist every 3 months. They don't have the money for this. It costs about $150. per visit without the testing etc. My younger son had to have an emergency appendectomy a few months ago and the Dr. told me that he was a walking time bomb. I pray for them every day to take care of themselves. This is my question.
Would it be alright for me to keep the $40.00 per week and save it to take them to the endocrinologist? I wouldn't be spending it on myself-but for my boys to keep them updated on the doctor visits. Neither of them have been to the endocrinologist in approx 2 years. They are young and think they'l live forever. They pay full price for their medicine and testing supplies. Please let me know if this would be ok. I would just like to do this once for both of them. That would mean not giving to the church for a couple of months. I am very worried about them and pray for them everyday.:confused:
