Hi everyone! How are you? I've been doing really great this past week! No bleeds - yay! Well, my place of employment changed insurances and it totally discobumerated some of my medical stuff! According to the insurance and our HR person @ work - nothing had changed, the benefits were all the same, but there was still some changes that had to be made. Had to say goodbye to Nurses on Wheels and find a new home health place! Really didn't want to see them go, Alma, Carlie, Melissa and Robert all took very good care of me! Alma came by to remove the needle in my mediport as that was always done every friday. My insurance e-mailed me the names of all the home health places in the network and I started with the one that had the name of Christ in it! I called Christus Spohn home health and spoke with a lady named Karen that was able to help me right away! I faxed her my insurance cards and before I knew it - I received a call from Debbie, one of their RN's! See photo of Debbie and I. She came by our home to put in a new needle in my mediport and access it so that Mark can give me the IV antibiotics! Unfortunately I'll have to do my own IV during my work day - I tend to be a little dingy and not retain information, so I'll have to write the instructions down step by step to make sure I'm doing it correctly! Debbie even brought an extension for my mediport so that would make it easier for me to handle! Well, just wanted to fill you in on the latest. Got a nice e-mail from a lady that has a 3 year old son w/an avm - she has been following my blog since January. I'm happy people out there are getting some information and I love hearing from anyone wanting to write! Actually, I thought there was room for a comment @ the end of each blog entry - but in case there is a problem I can be reached @ either: firstname.lastname@example.org and I can access that from my phone or home computer. Or @ email@example.com and I can only access that from my home computer. Here is another photo of Hanz and I - had just gotten home from work and he likes to come sit on my lap! Thanks everyone! I'm really excited about meeting Debbie - she is right around our age and very nice! Take care!
Ok, I'm also including a photo from the Brussels Griffon fan page of Mickey that belongs to Terry Rowe Amore. She looks a lot like our Bella! Also came across this photo of Mark, Mom and Hanz shortly after we had first gotten Hanz! Hanz turns 4 this month and Bella will be 2!
