I really hate my bad luck...

Well to start my husband had told me when he was down here a couple weeks ago that he was thinking about coming back next month to pick up our 3 year old and take him back with him to NC. My husband thought if he took our oldest child back with him that it would help releave my stress and it would give him and Patrick bonding time. So saturday comes and my husband informs me that he can't take Patrick back with him because the couple he's been staying with can't watch Patrick while he's at work because the wife is starting a job. However my husband's friend told him that me and the kids could come up there and stay with them until we had enough saved up to get our own place to either buy or rent. I was at first against it because our 2 year old son is recently been diagnosed with epilepsy and all his medical care is within minutes here in Orlando and if I move us up to NC all my son's medical care would be hours from where we would be staying. I wasn't too thrilled about that. But on Sunday I sat down, did a budget and was fine because we could still pay my husband's friend and the wife some money toward their bills and still be able to put money off to the side to put toward a new place. Monday comes and my husband tells me that everything was set and a-ok. Monday I make calls to my son's doctors here in Orlando, get medical records faxed to the naval hospital in NC and to the other specialist in NC. I make calls to set up Mala-Kye's appointment with his PCM at the naval hospital to have blood work done and set up the referral for the new neuro pediatrition that would be taking over Mala-Kye's medical care. I made the budget list, made the phone calls and even started doing the packing so I could have me and the kids packed and ready to leave by this weekend. Well I informed my husband of everything last night and he already requested to have time off so he could be there for Mala-Kye's doctor's appointment.

Today I call up my husband and we discuss me and the kids driving up there and everything. My husband telling me that he couldn't wait for me and the kids to be there. We talked for a while about it and then husband informs me that his friend hadn't discussed it with his wife yet. And 45 minutes later my husband calls me back to inform me that his friend's wife said absolutely not and no way in hell could me and the kids stay with them until we got our own place. I didn't handle the news very well and infact had a bit of a breakdown. I'm still not ok but hey, I have to be ok with it because what can I do?

Its just I'm pissed at my husband's friend for saying it was alright when he hadn't spoken to his wife yet. I'm pissed that I made all the budget and also made the necessary phone calls to get everything set up for my son who needs constant medical care. So now until we get the one referral cancelled and put in a new one for the doctor he needs to see here in Orlando my son is going to be without a doctor that is trained how to handle his health condition. I'm mad at myself for being so stupid. And what does my husband's friend have to say about all of it? "I'm sorry that things didn't work out." I seriously wanted to tell that guy to take his apology and to shove it up his butt because its not going to undo all the phone calls I made yesterday. So I'm just really upset over all of this and just wish I could turn the clock back and been more cautious. I just really feel very stupid and just wonder where I went wrong. And the really the victims here is my kids, especially my 2 year old son, Mala-Kye...
