Another letter. This week we have received another "form" letter, apologizing for the delay and that they still are processing our application. Applied August 1, requested expedited (age 90) have received acknowledgement for intent to file, receiving the application and three "update" letters. They have not asked for anything additional. My FIL had about $24-25000 to help supplement his $4000/mo assisted living space. Now we are looking at almost 6 months. The money is dwindling away....his spirits are so down...there should at least be some way to get an accurate status update. I so appreciate the boards and sometimes just read the positive outcomes to cheer me up. LOL. Thanks for listening everyone.
