At the beginning of October in 2019 I started having intense stomach pain.  It first started with extreme bloating, then eventually led to the point where I couldn't use the bathroom or even pass gas.  The pain was so severe that at one point they gave me Oxycodine, Tramadol, Morphine, Tylenol and it didn't even touch the pain - I was still 10/10 on the pain scale.  When the doctors told me they literally couldn't do anything else for my pain, I was literally on the floor in the ER in indescribable pain.  They discovered a 20 CM Mass wrapped up in my Small Intestine - The Mass was a desmoid Tumor that had been growing in my body for most of my adult life.  Luckily, It was a localized tumor, that didn't spread to my lymph nodes or invade my blood supply.
 
On 11/1/2019 they were able to successfully remove the tumor.  However, I endured MAJOR medical Bills.  Today I am 100% Medical Debt Free.  I made my last payment 20 minutes ago.  
 
I am recently engaged and have 8 children and one on the way.  I'm running a successful construction company and can now start focusing on saving for a down payment on our dream home!
 
Today is a day of liberation for me and my family!!!

    Children are wonderful, and expensive. And with the medical bills on top of everything else, I can see why you are so ecstatic, and also relieved.

    Congratulations, and here is hoping that you can finally find the home you want for your family.  Based on a previous thread, it seems you've been house hunting for some time.

    Congrats on getting those bills paid off. 
     
    The money that you were using to pay those bills maybe should be diverted to building an emergency savings account

    Congrats on being out of the medical debt! Medical debt is the worst, because it’s not something you want to incur, but a necessity.

    You are a warrior, no question about it. Kudos for not giving up OP. Congratulations on being debt free and for the miracle on the way😎👍

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    education may be expensive but wait until you get the bill for ignorance
    A wise man once said that we can't make anyone feel or do anything. We can throw things into the wind, but it's up to each person to decide how they want to react, where they want to stand when things fall.
