So much good news!!
I am so happy right now. First, Abby got off the bus with the same dry diaper that she got on the bus with over 4 hours ago. Wow! Without words, she can communicate to her teachers that she needs to go potty. She's pretty amazing. Then, after eating lunch and going on the potty again, she went to sleep-and so did Logan AT THE SAME TIME. So, I'm sitting here in quiet reading a book, which is awesome, when the phone rings. The voice on the other end wants to discuss Abby's approval for the Medicaid Waiver!!! This means she can restart speech therapy right now and start the paperwork to get her a communication device. She can start hippotherapy again and we won't be left with so many copays and deductibles. Also, it will also give us respite and will lift a huge financial burden of medical and prescription expenses! We have insurance, but they aren't paying for all the services that Abby needs, so this is such great news. It's a lot to think about, but I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!
