August 14th, 2008

Just a couple of updates... 

I met our new Case Manager today.  We lost our Case Manager when Kidscreen dissolved with the new TA Waiver.  This is our Medicaid Case Manager.   I was a little nervous about getting a new Case Manager, but she was fabulous.  She's already mentioned a lot of good things that she can help us with in the future.  I'm excited to see everything she has to offer.  She even wants to go to our Doctor appt's with us.  She used to be an NICU nurse at Wesley Hospital where Kinnick and Carver spent 5 months of their 7 month NICU stay.  She's been doing Case Management for the past 15 years and seems to be very knowledgeable.  We're excited to have her on board.

The other update is around our Pulmonologist appt that we had today.  She wants to avoid any changes with oxygen until after eye surgery and cochlear implant surgery.  Both of these surgeries are within the next month (hoping the cochlear is within a month), so this shouldn't slow us down too much.

Oh ... one more thing.  Carver is eating good for us.  We've only G-tube fed him 1 day feed in the last 3 days.  We're crossing our fingers that he continues improving.
