This was yet another well anticipated Friday. Not sure if I mentioned this on the blog before, but Melissa's last day of treatments has changed. Unknowingly to us, her doctor add 6 additional "boost" treatments to her radiation schedule. Not sure why or for what reason, but I would assume because she has handled it well so far, they are ending with a "bang", so to speak. Her last days is now the 11th of this month.
Melissa has had some trembling issues with her hands. I doubt this is a neurological side effect. It is most likely a side effect of the piles of medications she is required to take. It certainly deserves paying some attention to it.
So, I am know learning more about insurance, than ever before. It turns out, when your insurance has a "Max Out-Of-Pocket", you must read the fine, fine print. It seems we have reached ours, for this year already, and for the first time I am finding out that it only applies to doctors visit co-pays and surgical/hospital co-pays only. It does not cover ER visit co-pays or medicine co-pays. So far, I have yet to send a payment...but that time has come. Monday some of the first payments will go out. I felt like even though it is more than we could ever afford to pay, even over a couple years, making some effort is the right thing to do.
Melissa has prepared for Easter like crazy...though, I have not had to worry one bit about it....so it has been very nice.
I am taking midget for a hair cut tomorrow. I never know where I am going to take him or what to do with that wig...this should be fun.
