Good news, the insurance company is paying for Oliver's formula. That should save us a few hundred dollars a month.
They've also agreed to give us 40 hours of nursing care a week but we're having some issues with that already. Cigna is one of only a few insurance companies that requires a caretaker to be home with the nurse while they provide care, fine, but they , not even if the caretaker comes too. The nursing company has no problems taking Oliver out of the house, but Cigna won't allow it. So no walks in the park, no trips to the library, no aquarium. Stuck in the house, . It's simply not right to keep a two year old locked up in a house all day. How incredibly boring and lacking in stimulation!
If Chris wants to leave the house, the nurse clocks out and goes home and he needs to take Oliver out all by himself. This is a difficult endeavor even to go to simple places like the food store. Out in public is where we would need the most help, managing all of Oliver's equipment and moving him in and out of his carseat and into wheelchair. Feeding him outside of the house is much more complicated too. Chris and I always take Oliver out together nowadays, it's too tough with just one of us.
So now we're not sure what we're doing, I'm even thinking of taking leave too and staying home, at least then the two of us can provide Oliver with the experiences he deserves.
