Home away from home

Well, we are here again at our home away from home, Dr. Pedi. I feel
like we are here at least once a week with one of our kids. This time
it's Javi's turn with a probable ear infection. When you have three,
then tack on special needs and weakened immune systems, you
practically live in a doctor's office, whether they are sick or well.
I chuckle with Mark about starting a separate savings account just to
cover co-pays. Next year, I think we will start using the flexible
spending account so we at least get through all the medical without
paying Uncle Sam on top of it. We would have started it at the
beginning of the year this year, but it was a crazy time with Kaylee
and Ethan's diagnosis. We were still dealing with a lot of evals and
appointments at that time. That was one of the items that slipped
through the cracks.

Still have all the usual things scheduled. With our trip coming up
next week, we couldn't afford to cancel or reschedule anything else
and since most of our services are based on monthly hours, if you
don't use, you loose.

No sick days for Mom. Just gotta keep on trucking! Thank goodness
Grandma will be here soon to help out . Grandma is our savior :)
Don't know what I'd do with out her.

It's nice that I can blog from anywhere via email and include pics I take on the fly. One nice feature about the iPhone.

i soooo recommend flex spending! i use it for daycare expenses as well as medical....i only have one with special needs, so i can't imagine the co-pays for 3!!! u wouldn't believe how much those taxes add up to!

hope all are well soon!
