We've had a few days of logistical issues. (I would call it stress but the peace of God has really prevailed throughout this entire process.)
I went from a state of "out of network/ 0% benefit coverage" regarding the home infusion/IV therapy company.... to being minimally covered providing the company is in network and we pay the initial $2,000 dollars (ouch!)... to being completely DENIED a midline because I threw a bloodclot with my last midline and the current home infusion team thought it irresponsible to risk another blod clot with one of the two remaining, "Good veins" I have left. (And the drum roll please... )
From no coverage, to minimal coverage, to NO IV, to....
An appointment for 10am Wednesday morning at a hospital close to my Dr's office (2.5 hours away) for the placement of the PICC line (a central line for IV antibiotics located in my bicep) and then a 1:00pm appointment at my Dr's office for my first dose of IV Rocephin. :0)
HOW AMAZING IS THE LORD? Not only is He aware of every need I have... He is at work to provide for me every step of the way.
At one point it looked grim that I would make this 1pm appointment for the IV on Wednesday. Insurance, logistics, blodclot, etc... so I called Paul at work and despite the fact that he NEVER has time to so much as answer a yes or no question... He stopped me mid sentence and just prayed. I don't remember much of his prayer but I know there was an instant peace AND I remember him thanking the Lord for His involvement in the details of our situation and for going before us in this.
Seconds after hanging up with Paul I received a phone call telling me to arrive at the hospital Wednesday morning- the PICC line was scheduled to be placed at 10am. PHEW!
God is amazing. AMAZING. I don't know what else to say but THANK YOU ALL FOR PRAYING. It is so powerful. And I am so grateful to serve Him with you.
Please continue to pray for me as I get this IV in 36 hours. Pray for Paul as he will spend the entire day with the children... (A day in the life of a SAHM) ... homeschooling, entertaining, involving, feeding, cleaning, providing... etc. And pray for the children as their schedules tend to be interrupted by the IV maintenance required over the next several weeks.
We love you all!!! Thanks again.
