Feeding supplies and surgery

It is 10:20 am and we still don't have a surgery time (and of course Timmy is hungry because we are not feeding him in preparation for the anesthesia). But we have a good nurse today and she will keep bugging the right people.

And... (drum roll please) as soon as the papers are typed up and signed, WE HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR FEEDING SUPPLIES AND FORMULA!!! That takes off a huge financial burden. Praise God!

Dear Lara,

Hooray! You are not kidding when you say that relieves a "huge financial burden"!! Remember...I told you that Dalton's feeding tube expenses are $1,200.00 per month. Hooray! Hooray! And thank you God!!!

Once you get approved for one expense, maybe it will be easier to get approved for other expenses, too? If you get a chance, speak to the OT or PT about a reclining bath chair and maybe an adaptive stroller/positioning chair. We needed both of these for Dalton.

We will continue to pray for the surgery.

God Bless,
Julie R

PS. Timmy's party was lovely. And his huge smile when we all sang to him was PRICELESS!

By all means ask for a bath chair. I remember sitting in the bath tub in my shorts holding Dalton while his grandpa bathed him. :-)
