Some of you mothers and fathers know what I am talking about when I make this post...
6 therapies a week, full time private special needs school, lots of fancy custom expensive equipment, but seeing your 3.5 year old stand by himself for the first time...PRICELESS!
These beauties cost north of $7,000.
Thankfully our private insurance pays a portion for new every 6 months, while Medicaid picks up the tab. Say what you want about government entitlement programs, for us Medicaid has been a God send.
We would not be able to afford most of what it takes to help give Hayden the chance at a full life. We are so thankful to all of you paying your taxes so that we can afford to provide for him. Here is some of what your tax $ in Texas goes to.
OK, I'll get off my soap box now. I feel better about that PSA.
How cute is that diaper tushy?!
Second time got a little scared but here is how he looks.
Hayden has had his new wheelchair for over a month now. You don't even want to know what this cost. It took 8 months before we got it in. I am learning patience as everything of value is worth it.
Hayden for the first time is learning independent mobility.
Hayden playing serious with catch. We continue to work on co-ordination.
