So thankful...

Seven years ago today we admitted Fletcher to The Children's Center (TCC). That day is a blur to me and also a day I'll never forget. We were handing him over to people who knew nothing about him and didn't love him like we did. When I think back on those days, Fletcher was really, really sick. So sick it was scary. It's a true miracle that he is alive and doing so well. I know the Lord was with us in the decision to place Fletcher at TCC. I also know that the Lord has used that place to save his life many times. I also know Fletcher would not be doing as well as he is today if it weren't for TCC. The nurses, RT's and all the therapists have made the difference in his life.

Six or eight months ago we were approached by our nurse practitioner about bringing Fletcher home to live with us for good. So, the process to bring Fletcher was started. We set a date for October 5, 2012. Well as you know that date has passed. Right before we were set to bring Fletcher home, our insurance decided that they would not pay for nursing care in our home for Fletcher. So, we had to file an appeal with the insurance company. Well, we found out today that  the we won the appeal and they will be paying for nursing!!! So, tomorrow we meet with social services to work  out the details of home health and all the equipment we'll need. We are over the top excited and can't wait to bring Fletcher home. We'd appreciate your prayers as we make this huge transition. It's going to be hard but it will be worth it. Please pray for the nurses who will be coming into our home to care for Fletcher that will be competent and will treat him with respect and dignity. I know as soon as we have a good routine going it will get easier. Thank you so much for your love and support!
