Things continue to trek along...
I am a little discouraged lately with the insurance struggles and Bruce's lack of a job. I am working hard to stay upbeat, but it has been harder then usual.
Medicaid will not pay Alex's insurance premiums any longer...Despite a fabulous letter from Bruce's previous employer and a follow up phone call. (Thank you Tammy- We really appreciate the effort!) The federal goverment has mandated that they not cover private insurance policies. (Don't even get me started on this!). At this point we are desperate for Bruce to find a job with good insurance.
On a positive note, Alex's reading is improving daily. He amazes me with the words and sentences he is reading now. He just loves to learn and is so proud of himself when he does well. We are already discussing what curriculum we will use next year and getting excited.
Alex's labs yesterday were not very good. His liver numbers have tripled from 2 weeks ago. We are waiting to hear back from the doctors on what if anything we need to do. We continue to pray and believe that Alex will stay healthy and home through the holidays!
Thank you to all of you who continue to encourage us in so many ways. Through your friendship, support, kind words and selfless deeds. They truly are what keep me going some days! (Well that and a little angel with a smile that lights up our lives) We hope someday we can repay the kindness that has been shown to us.
