Random Ramblings

Katy has been home from HealthSouth for 4 days now.  It sure is good to have her home.  Willow sleeps on the couch next to her while she sleeps in her recliner.  The couch has two recliners built into it and she is having to sleep in that until we can get a portable AC unit upstairs for the bedroom.  So, for now, we snore together downstairs in our respective recliners. 

So far this week home health has sent an RN to do a patient assessment and the PT person came by to do one as well.  I think that Katy will get a visit two or three times per week for a while.  I am sure Cigna will see to it that those visits end sooner than later.  We still have to come up with 2300.00 to pay up our 5k family deductible for 2016.  Once we do that Cigna will pay 100% for everything that is left minus what they refuse to pay for.  The hospital bill estimation before the surgery came to 71,000.00 so I am sure we will get an updated bill soon.  That does not count the bill for the surgeons and other doctors who were on her healthcare team while she was at MUSC for a week. 

Justin came by to visit his mother at HealthSouth while she as there and Katy received several get well cards and flowers for her room.  Several church members came by to visit including the pastor which really made her day.  One of the church members brought Katy 3 paintings that are now hanging in the bedroom.  They are very colorful and cheerful looking.

The next step for Katy is for her to regain some of her strength.  Katy spends a lot of time in her recliner dozing for now and watching TV and using her iPad to surf facebook so she can chat with her friends and family.  On Monday she will be calling her case worker to see about getting the wheelchair delivered so she can go to church and other places. 

Katy and I both appreciate the outpouring of love and generosity through her Gofundme page.
