I finally got help logging back on to lymenet after a very long time.

I lost my husband just ten day before our 1st aniversary over a week ago. He had an accident and was ejected from a crane while doing upstate repairs from hurrican irene.

The trauma center said there were no broken bones but they gave him dilaudid for the pain and he went into repiratory failure on the third day. They had to put him on a respirator and told me they coudl wean him a day or two.

He developed a fever I told them to test for lyme. He was positive for lyme babs and bart and a staph infection. They said it was the least of his issues but they treated him with all the abx at one through a central line in his neck.

He was not able to be weaned after two weeks so they put a trach in his neck and said he would be sitting in a chair the next day. That night, 100 miles away in a hotel, I got the call that said "Ms S, Joseph went into cardiac arrest and expired!" That was all he said to me.

I no longer have any lyme treatment or anyway of getting to a lyme doctor since my vertigo keeps me from driving or even walking. I managed to have a wake and funeral with the help of xanax, a cane, and my girls.

I am so sick still, no treatment, no money to even buy food now and will probably have to find a way to empty my house and sell it. SSD decided to review my case again after only a few months of receiving benefits. I have a phone interview on monday.

My husbands ex and his boys are doing everythign they can to make my life harder. They took all the bank books and upstate property and vehicles that he owned since the will was never updated.

I called a malpractice lawyer concering my husband since so so many things were done wrong. THey want me to bring his body back up for an autopsy! I cannot do this so only God knows what really happened. I was told by a nurse that his trach developed a blot clot and he couldnt breathe. They suctioned him (most likely too late) and his heart stopped.

Sorry for the long story but I want to die. I have nothting to live for anymore and I sit here alone in this house and think of how horrible his death had to be, alone, tied down and drowning without being ablt to talk for help.

I give up on everything and life

This is so tragic and beyond sad. I'm so sorry, Annie. May God hold your hand and comfort you. God bless you as you travel this long valley.

Is there any way you could get a lawyer so you can get some of the property back? You WERE legally married, right? So you DO have some rights.

Please stay with us. We will do what we can for you. Do you have any immediate needs?

I am so sorry for you. One word of advice. If they took these possessions before you have or had the will probated they are in violation of a court peer, the will. How did they get these items.' did he give them to them.' if not you can have your lawyer force them to give them back. I would suggest locking the house and chAnging locks. Also put papers and valuables in a box with hour name on it

annier,

I am so deeply sorry for your tragic loss.

I will pray for all your needs to be met, for you to find all the strength and comfort you need, and for restoration of your health.

It may seem like you are alone, but God is right there with you, holding you up when you cannot do it yourself.

This is beyond tragic. I am so, so very sorry.

Find comfort in anything you can. I've read that the spirits of those who love us are still able to comfort us. Please do not focus on his death. That is over. He is in a place of peace and love, and I know he would want you to focus on that.

The pain will lessen with time, and you will find ways to treat your Lyme. One day at a time for now.

Much love,

I'm so sad to hear your story. Please, please, if you have never done so before, please seek God out to get you through this time. He is the only way one can find peace to keep moving forward when your life has crumbled before you.

Take one day at a time too. I'm going to pray for you, ok. Just, please don't give up. We never know what God is doing, but he is using our misery for ministry somewhere, to reach someone.

Lord Annie, I'm so ,so sad and mad that you are having to go through this.. I have a bit of this happening now in my life. BUT for the Grace of God.........
I hope you're connected to a church or group locally.... I know you're down to your last thread, please hold on...
It seems like every thing possible has hit you. I pray with Blinkie, that the Lord is in your life..

Was he seperated from his ex long??? .In other words was there time and space between marriages to show your rights as a wife??/ Also the probate issue might be good that they can't walk away with everything. Do you have a copy of this "WILL". I'm no lawyer but maybe one will help through church or contingent.

Food? are you well enough to go to the help organizations? Is there family anywhere for you.

Age will have alot to do about what's available etc. You can PM me if you want. I've been around ,through and over some very rough valley's..

You are LOVED.....Nonna

Thank yoiu all for your prayers and kind words. I am still numb one minute, angry at him the next minute, and panicking and sobbing on the floor half the day.

He was my rock, kept me sane and kept me going. I miss hearing I love you every five seconds and having him cover me at night when he thought I was sleeping.

He was separated since 1998, legally divorced in 2001 and we were together since january 2000. We just married last year and were ten days short of our anniversary when he passed.

He had not updated the will from way back so the upstate property goes to his boys along with the life insurance, annuity etc..That is ok with me. I have the house we were in but with a HUGE mortgage on it. I doubt I will be able to handle it but I am so sick that it is taking me all day to get rid of just a few things.

I am not able to get to a church or any group and I so wish I could. I need to talk to someone fast. I cannot even get to my own doc appts now without him to drive me.

My daughtesr are getting me tomorrow to spend the weekend in brooklyn with them in my old apartment. They want me out of queens and back with the family but sellign a house is a long process and I dont have the strength to undo all we put together here in the last few years.

I lay in the dark at night and talk to my husband and ask him for some sign that the is by my side. It is strange but our kitty stares up at the ceiling all the time now and I feel she sees or senses he is with us. I can only pray that he is.

Annier,

Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you must be going through.

I just wanted to let you know that if your husband made the will while he was still married to his first wife, the divorce may have invalidated it. You need to check with an attorney.

annier,

Please call any church that you wish and ask for the pastor/priest to make a home visit to you.

Explain that you are very sick and just lost your husband.

Any good church will respond to that need.

I am continuing to pray for you, dear.

Our Lord knows the heartbreak you are feeling.

He is there with you always and He will get you through this.

Your husband obviously loved you very much.

So sorry for your loss. And yes, I agree that you should call a church in the area even if you are not a member there. Or some hospitals have volunteer chaplain services and could probably find you someone to talk to.

And please consult a lawyer -- someone should be willing to at least talk to you at no charge for a brief visit.

As to the will -- a lot depends on what state you are in. Hubby is a CPA and he went to a very interesting seminar years ago regarding estates and probate. Afterwards he was able to talk his grandfather into going to a lawyer and writing a will.

His grandfather was an oldtime tobacco farmer with a 3rd grade education. He thought he could leave all of his property to his own children and nothing to his 2nd wife (he had been widowed) and the 2nd wife had kids by a previous marriage.

In North Carolina the law used to be that a wife was entitled to a child's portion of the estate which was considered one-sixth of the property value -- REGARDLESS OF HOW THE WILL WAS WRITTEN. Unless there was a valid reason he could not disinherit his wife in favor of his kids.

I have no idea of the estate laws in the state where you live. But it is possible that you might be entitled to a portion of the other assets besides the house regardless of what the old will says.

And a lawyer could advise you regarding the possible autopsy. There may be a legal case against the hospital.

I didn't understand if your husband was on the job or working on his own property when he died. If he was on the job there could be a worker's comp claim involved.

Also -- I think social security is reviewing way more cases than usual to try to cut funding. Hubby just got his letter as well. If you haven't been to a doctor that will make your case tougher, but I would explain the current situation and ask for more time so you can get to an LLMD and have those office notes on file when your case is reviewed.

And please don't give up on yourself -- I am sure your husband would not want you to do that.

I am deeply sorry that you've lost your dear husband with whom you shared a great love. I'm grateful you have daughters who seem to want to help.

I imagine you MUST have some rights here, and I'm so sorry your husband's ex and sons swooped right in. Couldn't they have waited at least?

I'm so, so sorry!!

Ann, I would take seibertneurolyme's advice and speak to a lawyer. In New York State one cannot disinherit their wife unless there is a pre-nup agreement.

I am not a lawyer but I think regardless of the out dated will you are entitled to a portion of the estate. Seek legal counsel to get this clarified.

Again, I'm sorry for your loss and pain.

I ask that you all contribute to the Green Santa program to help Annie in whatever way you can.

Being widowed is hell. Having Lyme/cos is hell. Having kids on top of that and having difficulty keeping a roof over your head is a special kind of hell when you no longer have your spouse.

Prayers are great and I'd urge everyone to keep them coming.

From a practical standpoint, this lady needs a lot more than our prayers. She needs help meeting her and her daughters' basic needs. She has LD and is sick like so many of us here.

If you can help this lady in ANY capacity, I'd suggest that you contact Julie (aka the guardian angel of LN) and volunteer extraordinaire of the Green Santa program.

Or if you prefer, you can PM me.

First and foremost - I am so sorry for you loss and the hardship you are having to endure. I cannot imagine what you are going through and I will pray for your family.

Alana- it is very kind of you to want to help this family out - If you want to be in charge of helping her at Christmas that is fine.

But as far as Operation Green Santa goes, it must go through me. I know you just want to help her and I would be happy to put her and her children on the Green Santa list (with her permission). But it will get confusing to people if you are asking them to help with Green Santa, but pm'ing you for this family.

I try to be fair and make sure that each family gets equal Santa's, etc. and it will be impossible for me to keep track this way.

It is so hard to write a post explaining this; I hope you understand what I am saying. I think you are very kind wanting to help [Smile]

If I put this family on the Green Santa list, they will have to contact me directly. If others want to help this family, it will be outside of Operation Green Santa and they will have to contact Alana. If people want to help others in the Green Santa program, they should contact me.

OMG Annier, of course your family understands, but no one wants you to go without Christmas gifts. I really don't think Julie meant to imply that helping you was a problem. I think she's trying to make sure neither you, nor anyone else gets overlooked. We are just all so sorry for you.

It is NOT causing a problem, Annie!!!! Julie works hard to keep things straight and cannot take on a donation fund as well.

She wants to help you with Christmas gifts. Your children deserve this help!!!

Please PM Julie and let her help! [group hug]

If you have a huge mortgage on the house, I am wondering if you still have any equity in the house, because of the decline in house values the last couple of years.

If you don't want to stay in the house, or can't because the house payments are too much, one alternative is to walk away and let the bank take it. They will foreclose and it will hurt your credit, so there are also reasons not to do this.

Depends on your situation and what you want to do. Probably very hard to think or plan at this point.

If you want to stay and the payments are too much, there is a govt program to help refinance the house and lower the payments. Have heard that it doesn't help as many people as they originally hoped it would, and there are hoops to jump thru, but if you are consulting professional help, this would be one thing to look into.

annier,

You are carrying a heavy enough load right now.

Please don't let us 'thinking out loud' on here sound wrong or uncaring to you.

This is just the opposite. Many of us would like to help you in whatever way we can.

If we all lived in the same neighborhood, we could bring meals, slip $10. under your door or whatever.

It gets so big because we do care and we are so dispersed.

You are in our prayers and thoughts. We need to help each other, we're in this together.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help.

I just read through this - am very sorry for what you're going through -

I hope you will at least be getting help to get to the doctor as needed, whether it be through your daughters, or maybe some help from a local NY Lyme support group? They would be listed with Support Groups.

It isn't a problem to put your family on the Green Santa list at all. I was just trying to let Alana and others know that if they want to help you specifically, then it needs to be done another way.

Sorry my post was misunderstood - I really tried to word it so that it wouldn't get misread.

I got to my GP with my daughter but they have taken off too many days already while my husband was in ICU upstate. They would not let me stay alone up there in a hotel.

I am not going to my lyme doctor. THere is not way in this world I could lay out that money ever. I just have to hope for the best right now.

I have been putting many things on amazon and ebay and making a small amount of money, but it helps right now. I am figuring it will be just a few months before I lose the house..hoping it is after the cold winter ahead!

God has to have some relief ahead for me. This cant be my life now.

Annie,

I just saw this thread now. OMG, i was worried about you before . . . but this is beyond the beyond!!! I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. This, on top of what you were dealing with already, due to the Lyme, etc., has to be unbearable. And his ex's family, yikes! You need the help of an excellent lawyer ASAP. ANd surely they would be willing to do a phone consult or house call under the circumstances. Get a referral for someone who is good with this kind of case.

You need lots of help of every variety right now, as people have been suggesting. Please don't be shy about asking for it, be it here, from a lawyer, from a church, etc.

You also need to look into tapping into your husband's social security benefits, unless that isn't possible yet, due to his age (I don't know how that works). Here again, a good lawyer could help, or a social worker, or both would be good. A good social worker could help you to tap into whatever social agencies could help right now and on-going.

As people have said, you also need the help of a lawyer in a malpractice lawsuit, too. That might be a different lawyer from the will issue.

Make sure that you have a good SSDI lawyer to help on that front, too. Wow, you need someone to help on every front---what an assault! Lord have mercy on you.

Yes, call a church and see how they can help, as it is way too much for you to do all by yourself. Plus, you need someone to help you get to your dr appointments, etc. What about Access-a-Ride for that? I'm sure that you are eligible for that. Or do you need even more help than that to negotiate getting from the vehicle to the building, etc.?

Oh, and on the LLMD issue, I will PM you in the next day or so with some ideas I have on how to deal with that. That shouldn't be neglected, but you don't have to go back to the same one.

Lord lift her up! And all of us lift you up, too.

Rum

Thank you so much for all the advice. I cancelled my lyme doc appt for tues..there is no way I can afford to see him anymore or even to get there.

I had applied for access a ride last years and was denied (hard to believe but true!) I called SSD and I am entitled to 71% of my husbands SS benefits since I just turned 50 and am disabled. It is minimal but it is something.

I called the councilman here and they sent me papers for disabiliy tax exemption papers for the house. There is so much involved in doing them and I am half a brain anyway now...but will try.

I had a two malpractice lawyers who have now decided not to take the case. They said since there was no autopsy (I never knew they didnt do one and never even thought of it at the time) it would be too hard to prove the overdose of the drug. God has to give me strength because we all know that the hospital caused his death. he was fine until this med was given to him and now he is gone from us.

I have to see what a probate lawyer costs (looking for the cheap ones) to contest the will. His ex got everything and took everything from me except this house that is under our names but newly mortgaged so I am sure she wouldnt want this one. I just cant think of fighting right now for any of my rights but I think I have to get the strength.

I need prayers right now to even go on. Luv Ann

You may want to call the bar association for your state, maybe a law school, maybe some big law firms around and ask if they do any pro bono (free) work for those in need. That would be ideal. Sometimes bigger law firms can better afford to do pro bono work and you can get a top notch lawyer for free

I just googled "new York pro bono attorneys" and there were a lot of links. Many of them were directed at lawyers wanting to do pro bono work but you could still call them to get information and/or ask for a referral. Heres one link but there were several. http://www.probono.net/ny/nyc/

I sure hope you can find someone to help out here.

I got legal shield from the internet..25 dollars a month and they give you a contact number and claim number to a local law firm..Mine is in suffolk county.

I hope I am not being scammed but the seem to be legit from what I have read. The regular lawyers wanted 750 an hour!!! I couldnt talk that fast!

Good find. I mentioned in a previous post that under NY state law a spouse cannot disinherit his wife.

The real question is did his will still name his previous wife in it. If it did I am sure that will, will be deemed null and void as it relates to the ex-wife, as she is no longer the legal spouse.

The children will be entitled to their share but the courts will have to decide, since there was not an updated will since your marriage, how the estate will be divided under the law of New York State.

In effect, the old will cannot be followed to the letter, as it's in violation of the law.

just for information. my husband's friend was married a while ago, divorced and got a new wife.

died within a couple of years. did not update any personal information.

the old will left everything to his first wife. even his insurance policies were made out to her.

new wife sued, lost. first wife took everything including the stuff that was in joint name. reason: she owned his half and since the new wife did not have enough money to buy her out, she had to sell and give her the money.

crazy but that's what happened.

as soon as i got married (he had a first wife and two kids), i made him redo that will and insurance policies. i got nosey and had the checking accounts, house, etc., everything change. i looked into old credit cards, you name it.

now everything is made out to me, as it should be.

so for what's it worth, the courts and lawyers cannot always help. sorry but it's true.
