4 + 2 = SIX MONTHS!!!!...UPDATE


So, I talked to the Ortho place today. I was told that there is a branch in my backyard instead of the one we were referred to. (this is amazing since it's the only place in the state that our ins. covers. Next closest place in the next state over)

SO, I was like awesome and by the way I want a sooner appt. I got one. For next Wednesday, for eval and scan. I am told this should take 90 min. two weeks from then is the fitting.

She said that these dates were tentative because she needs to wait on approval from ins. I said, NO. these dates are set. If ins. doesn't cover it we will pay out of pocket. Her response. Do you realize how expensive this will be. My immediate reply. You do realize this is my daughter we are talking about. I dont care how expensive it will be. surprising she didn't have a response...

So we wait. BUT only for a week.

Hannah is doing so well that we are reducing her PT session from 2x a week to 1x a week.

I got a call today (message on voicemail) and Hannah's scan for her helmet appt. is June 8th. WTF. JUNE. she will be six months. She was dx at four months. It shouldn't be taking this long. I dont have access to a phone during the day while at work, so I am having hubby call tomorrow to request an earlier date. There better be a time this month.

Right now I am in the line of fire between Bug and his grandfather, Poppy, wrestling session.

better go before I get nailed...

will continue to update soon.


  1. Wow, I hope they can get you in before June, what a pain!

  2. I've learned too quickly that you have to be your own advocate for your/children's health. Glad you're not letting them push you around. Besides, if they do charge you, just write an appeal letter. 80% of cases are then covered. We had to do that with some of our emergency ultrasounds.

    Hannah is a sweetheart. Glad she has such wonderful Mom!!

  3. Hi, I am not exactly sure how I landed here, random googling and following links from other pages, but wanted to wish you the best, and encourage your mommy's going to fix it attitude.

    I am 30 - and a mom of two,and I was bor with Torticollis - it is unresolved, so my face is asymmetrical, and I still have the tilt. If you are interested, I'd love to follow your story on my website at www.mytortsupport.com.

    I'm also on facebook under torticollis support, if you Facebook at all : )

    Anyhow -take care and good luck!
