Yesterday’s reprieve was cut short. 😦 I went to pick up the girl’s meds, feeling positive because she’s been doing so well. A not so nice surprise waiting for me at the pharmacy. Unsurance wants another deductible, even though we just paid one a few months ago. The icing on the cake? They (unsurance) decided they will only ok part of her prescription. This, by the way, is not a new prescription or dosage, this was a refill. Aargh! I know I’ll spend all of Monday on the phone, trying hard to be pleasant and cooperative after being on hold for three hours.
Took the little guy for his entrance exam. My butt is numb from sitting on an auditorium chair for three and a half hours, but I feel energized. The principal of the school is a charismatic speaker, who follows through on his verbal commitments to the children, and has dedicated his life to helping these kids find better opportunities. Admission to this school is a long and multi-step process, this was just the first step. I don’t think we will know anything final until late April. It’s a humbling process, with several hundred children applying for about 35 spots. Humbling because all children deserve wonderful opportunities, and the support and education required to utilize those opportunities.
