I have been concerned these last couple of weeks of paying the co-pay for Nathan's synagis shots. Jake and I have savings in the bank, however, in a couple of years if Nathan is not eating by mouth, the limit on our DME supplies will have been met and we would be responsible for the feeding bags, g-tube supplies, etc. We have set aside an account that will pay for this when the time comes. Having aprox $2000 taken from that account would put a decent dent in that savings account!

The Spanish Fork Clinic was given the name of a charitable organization that helps pay the copays for necessary health care supplies/needs. The patient needs to have serious healthcare needs and the copays must meet a certain amount. The family's yearly income is also taken into consideration. The clinic gave us the phone number and I applied for help. Turns out, we qualified within the income limits and the RSV shots are part of one of their funded programs. They will completely cover our copays until May for Nathan.

We are very fortunate and blessed. This is the first time the clinic said that a family has been able to get assistance in this area through them. The organization is located back east.

Every day I see how Heavenly Father is watching out for us. He gave us Nathan and He also gave us a way to pay and care for him. Nathan does not want for adequate medical care. Where there are great trials, there are also great blessings.

Isn't that wonderful! I know Vaeh's copay for her synagis shots last year were around $350! (each dose she got was $8041 - multiply that by 5!)

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

PS - do you use the split gause for around his button? I have a couple of boxes left that we don't use on Vaeh anymore... you're welcome to them if you want. Just let me know & I'll send them to you.
