For the new year!

I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. It was like a violent shove into 2009! There are a few changes happening in our house this next year. I am excited to be able to feel like we are able to start over!

First, on January 9th we are coming to Utah to visit with Shriner's hospital. That place is like Heaven. We are getting a consult and possible treatment for Pheynl there. I am not sure what we are going to do. If you would have asked us before our Botox consult I would have been on the band wagon. Now we have to hear it all before we say yes or no.

Second, we are getting new braces for Ty's legs. They are not covered by our insurance here in Arizona nor his Long term care. We are paying out of pocket for the first time in 2 years. Its an odd feeling. Shriner's doesn't pay for Titanium so we are just gonna be paying for them. Lucky for us they are 2 grand and not more.

We will be adding swimming again and hopefully we are making strides.

As the mom I have made a resolution to be a better mom this year. Spend more time with Ty. Be consistent with his braces and continue to do what we can to better his life.

Here is to a new 2009!

Anyone tried botox or pheynl that would like to add a few things or give advice?

I have a good friend who has MD. She started getting botox in her hands and she loves it! The only down fall she has is that her insurance will only pay for it every three months, and the botox wears out before that. I have seen the difference and it's amazing how her once clenched fist can now open and have use.

I have no advice but just wanted to say good luck! I wish I could do swimming with Marshall. He LOVES it!!

We just had to pay out of pocket for our little Josh's dafo braces. I was not happy about the 120$ we had to pay. My heart goes out to you for the cost of your little one's braces. The financial aspect of kids with special needs is so stressful. I hope that it goes well with him and good luck with everything!
