Today we went to the GI Doctor for a check-up on the Feeding Tube. The Dr.'s are still concerned that she is losing weight. She has not been as nauseous lately. She seems to be tolerating her feeds better too. She still complains that she is hungry. The Dr.'s went ahead and upped her food from 1600 calories a day to 2200. She is feeling less hungry already just after a couple higher feeds. As long as she doesn't get worse with feeling sick and nauseous we can try to shorten the feeds from an hour to 30 minutes. The insurance is still refusing to cover the cost of the special formula that Addison survives on. Her Dr.'s have been helpful with letters to our Insurance. We have a Lawyer waiting in the wings "just in case" the Insurance denies our appeal. Our parents have been very generous helping out with the cost of the food. At $1225 a month it has been stressful for us. Today Addison's GI Dr. gave us some formula. It was almost three whole boxes. There was 17 cans @ $35 a can = $595 worth of formula. (She needs 35 cans of formula a month now that they upped her calories. So every little bit helps.) What a testimony of tithing this is for us. I have been a little bitter lately with the way our life has been going. I have never questioned paying tithing, but lately I have been thinking when I write that check out for tithing how much food that would buy for Addison. But I still write it out knowing that is what I am SUPPOSE to do. What a blessing this was for us today.
