Indemnity!! I never knew!

Today I found out about something wonderful. When I say wonderful, I mean WONDERFUL!! Everytime Zoe is in the hospital, Scott takes vacation or sick time, whatever he has available. When that time runs out, as it always does, it gets real rough. My very dear friend, Mel, who also happens to have cf, told me today about indemnities. I cried when she told me about this insurance. Essentially what it does is pay me money when Zoe is in the hospital, on home health care, for an out patient surgery procedure, for an emergency visit, and I.C.U. stays also. The pay is different for all of the above, but oh my gosh, what a blessing, what a relief. The best thing of all is, that since Zoe is so young, we can get a really great monthly rate, forever! The rate will never change, ever! I am going to let my cf social worker know about this, as well as every family I personally know that has cf in their lives. Thank you Melissa, I love you!

Zoe's cold seems to be better as far as her nose goes. She isn't sneezing constantly anymore. Today she had quite a few very mucousy coughing sessions. I really pray she can fight this on her own and not have to do antibiotics. It has only been 5 weeks since antibiotics and her tune-up. I really want at least that 3 months we had last tune-up, cough-free.

Today I have been thinking about my support system that I have with I love my friends. I am grateful for them. Actually in all reality, I wouldn't know what to do without them. They relate, they love me, even in my quirky moments....

Goodnight to all,
