So, in an attempt to get ready for taxes, I got a wild hair and made a spreadsheet of Andi's medical expenses from the piles of paperwork I once organized. It has colums for co-pay's, prescriptions, medical equipment and notes. I know I'm missing $1000. of the $3000. co-pay cap for last year's hospitalization, and it does not include anything we've had to pay for me, ($1200. hospitalization, and all the pregnancy appointments - every 3 weeks, and thensome.)
Wowsa, them some great Delta miles we've accrued. However, looking at this, I can't complain -- at all. It could be SO much worse. We could have been financially ruined with all the expenses. We are so grateful, so incredibly grateful. I did see that Doernbecher's does take AmEx, as I stumbled onto that invoice. I also saw a couple of billing statements showing me exactly how much her first few months of life cost... wowza. I have a $10,000. dog and a multi-million dollar baby...amazing.
Since being on Neocate, Andi has not really spit up at all. She ate some bananas and some banana/peach granola this morning too. No problems so far. I've also noticed that her super dry skin has seemingly become better. Coincidence? Hmmm... or is Alimentum just sucky-sucky?
Today, Andi got to experience some of the finer things in life, DMV and DEQ. DEQ bored her, she slept. But DMV had a lot of faces at which to stare, she even started chatting with the man who took the photo. It was a rather exciting day in Andi-land.
After her feed settles a bit longer, we're going to play in the standing activity circle o' fun. Not only is it fun to get a different perspective, and the toys are more interesting, but it's good for the cold in her lungs to get off her back. She's definitely itching to go, as she's doing a Riverdance number and chatting it up on her pillow. I think the kid has some energy to burn.
