A little update

Dad's doing alright. He's at home. Tiffany is there if he needs anything. He has another doctor appointment later this month.

So, remember that $40,000 hospital bill I told you about? They applied COPA CARE to it and now we owe $948 instead! COPA CARE is a medical discount program my parents were able to qualify for a while back. Basically, you have a copay...plus you pay a percentage of the whole bill...not great...but better than nothing...and in this case it was a huge blessing. (One of the many!) It isn't insurance though...and you can only go to county facilities and see county doctors...who have been great by the way...just really limits you.

As far as insurance goes. Dad has qualified for PCIP!  I am still a little bit hesitant to get my hopes up. When he has his insurance card and has used it...than I will uncross my fingers! The first months premium was mailed today. We didn't make the cut off date for his coverage to start on September 1st. (We had everything in...they are just behind on opening their mail.) So, we faxed in the information and they are going to try to get an effective date of September 1st authorized. That would be wonderful. But even if he has to wait until October 1st...it'll be okay!

I love this quote by Marjorie Pay Hinckley, "Do what you have to do, when you have to do it and with a cheerful heart."

Many of you have done what you felt you needed to do and made a donation to dad's liver donation fund. We recognize your generosity as a blessing from our Heavenly Father...and pray that the Lord will "open the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." {Malachi 3:10}

Thank you again...truly...from the bottom of our hearts.

 (DAD!...I said "hearts" not "farts!")....
