Interestingly, of the three patients our office has submitted (of which Parker is one), only one has been approved... the kid that she finds least likely to be affected by RSV. The third child is having OPEN HEART SURGERY THIS MONTH and was still denied. For the love of pete. If we get denied again, we are just going to have to pay out of pocket. Hooray $6000! I do know there are lots of assistance programs available, but we don't qualify for the ones I have researched so far.
Bake sale? Car wash? Hopefully it won't come to that. :-)
In other news, Parker gained one pound ten ounces since his last weigh check 2 weeks ago. He now tips the scale at 17 pounds 12 oz. Needless to say, weight gain doesn't seem to be of much concern anymore! As a result, we have been granted time off and, for the first time ever, get to go A WHOLE MONTH with no appointments! Well, no pediatrician appointments. We still have a follow up with GI doctor on Monday and the follow up swallow study in a few weeks. Still, we are pleased!!!
Side note- one of my favorite things about being a mommy is having an excuse to relive my childhood, which was an exceptionally happy one. Right now, Jeremiah is enraptured with my old Ramona Quimby books, which we read chapters of before every naptime and bedtime. He saw them on the shelf one day and asked about them, and has requested that we go get some more from the library when we go through those. I think I might look for the "boy" versions about Henry Huggins. Or perhaps the Fudge books. It tickles my English teacher heart that he wants to read chapter books. Poor child... Teacher Mommy makes him tell me what happened yesterday before we read the next chapter. Reading comprehension for three year olds! Most fun mom ever!! Still, I need "boy book" recommendations. AND NO CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS! :-)
Oh, and remember that silly Pinterest baby? She's got nothing on my little Pnut. Or my sweet aunt Nesie who caught my Contagious Crazies.
His big floppy ears make my heart sing. Mostly 'cause I have the same ones.
