A BIG Update!

Well.....We are here in Colorado! YAY! This move has been so emotionally exhausting. I'm am so grateful to be here...and that we can finally start to get on our feet.

The drive from Spokane to Denver was sooo not fun, but there were no real issues and we arrived safely.


Now for the Updates!! We got some news, just before we started packing the truck, that Bailey had been denied benefits for medical coverage for a MUCH needed surgery. Her brain tumor has grown since March and we have been fighting with the state and doctors, to try and get this surgery covered.
After the denial, I have been extremely stressed, wondering how on earth this surgery was going to happen for Bailey....The surgery would happen, regardless of the financial impact, but it was seriously stressing me out.

This week, I got a call from a lady, who had been working Bailey's disability case. The words out of her mouth, just about sent me to the floor. "We reversed the decision On Bailey's case". Unsure of what this actually meant, I questioned her.....It turns out the state approved Bailey for disability and her surgery will be covered!

The impact of all of this, has truly taken a toll on all of us, including Bailey, who reads my blog and knows that this situation was truly stressful.

After this phone call, we called Bailey into the room and told her about this news.....She was just as happy as we were. :)

Now for the doctors and referrals .... and getting everything set up for this surgery. (that's the easy part)
