Bath and Bacon Makes Better

After a long day, he's home, in his own bed. Freshly bathed and baby-smelling (in a good way). Whew.

We're still going to be keeping a close eye on his wounds, and on signs of swelling in the brain, which we made the doctors rehearse and rehearse and rehearse for us. Once all the post-multiple-major-neurosurgery stuff is cleared up, we'll start talking with the oncologists....maybe a couple weeks from now.

We, Ama and Dada, are about to hit the sack as well. Scott spent the day getting Thomas discharged and moved back home with all the proper gear and prescriptions in tow and on time.

I, meanwhile, spent roughly five hours finding out how one might apply for 5 federal and state medical aid programs**...and then one hour finding out how we, specifically, could not apply. So instead, I applied for private insurance for Thomas, so that we can be denied, so that we can apply for a 6th state program, so that we can qualify to wait for it while we wait to apply, next month, for one of the other five, and when we don't get that, for us to be then allowed to apply for two others in the group of five.*

Got that?


Still, baby's doing well. Played quite a bit today and ate a ton. Nothing's as good as a baby with bacon, we say.....

*Note: We DO know about Heroes for Children. I am glad that such a smart and worthy charity is so widely known and we're grateful that they found us early on. I've heard from about a dozen readers about them. They're just one part of the answer to a very big question for us.

**Also note: This isn't a money problem, exactly; just a avoid-having-the-mother-of-all-preexisting-conditions problem, and a long-term-solution-to-managing-Thomas's-care problem. Don't want to sound emergency-ish to our bless'ed supporters :)

Bacon makes everything better...Give Thomas cuddles (as Ethan would say) for the Californians.

Yay bacon.
I'm glad he's doing well and your home.
And that he smells in a good way.
