WHEW! It's been a wild few weeks!

Hans is doing better and better. He is capable of functioning at 'normal' levels...the only thing missing is his incredible retention (he could quote you on something you said to him, 10 years ago, word for word). But, he is better. He ended up with a stress ulcer, and, after 4 failed attempts at filling a perscription (all denied for lack of pre-authorization),I found myself on the phone with Blue Cross, throwing myself on their mercy, asking what med, what strength, and what dosage I could have the doc that was standing by (who had called in the other, failed, scripts) call in to keep Hans out of the ER with a dilaudid IV drip.

I HATE the life of a caregiver...lol! But, at least now, he says 'Thank you' for my work...I think someone took him aside and shared with him how lucky he was to have me in there pitching...

Thank you all, again, for all of your thoughts and prayers...it is what made all the difference!!!

BIG hugs, Kathi

    I am SOOOOOO glad Hans is
    I am SOOOOOO glad Hans is doing better. I've been thinking of both of you and wondering how you were. What a b**** to have to deal with these insurance companies. I'm sure if it was for them it would be approved without a doubt. Hang in there sweet Kathi, it will get better. Hugs to you and Hans. Lili

    Hans is a very lucky man to have you pitching for him. I know how dealing with those ins. companies can be and it is so very frustrating.I am glad that he is better. I have been praying for both of you.

    Good to hear this
    I'm so glad that Hans is better and that he knows how lucky he is to have you!! You are indeed a great caregiver. I hope that the two of you get to take that trip to Holland soon. You both need a respite from all of the worry and stress lately.
