    my friend. Sadly, even though I live in Texas, I am not familiar with the medical infrastructure here, but I see tha you have gotten some excellent advice above. Therefore, I will devote my energies to sending positive vibes your family's way with the hope that everyone involved in Tony's care brings their most compassionate and resourceful selves to the task.

        and we hadn't had a Perry term yet the last time I had to check into this stuff.

        Monday morning, contact Social Security. He's going to be disabled.
        That's what the program's called OASDI for:
        Old Age Sickness Disability Insurance.
        Now given Li'l Ricky ... your sister / Tony's wife will have hoops to jump through, but there are some folks -- I think San Antonio is region 4/5 South -- who can help at the Dept of State Health Services office.
