Holding Pattern

We are in a temporary holding pattern.   Thank you so much for all of these ultra sensitive, thoughtful, compassionate emails and responses that you have sent to me.   I am anchored in your love.
Boring update:
1.   Tomorrow Taylor has Pre-op for his MRI next Tuesday.
       He has to be put to sleep for the MRI--it's a new thing for those who need sedation. 
       Hence the Pre-Op.   Arrghhh.
2.    I will over-night the MRI CD to the neurosurgeon in Chicago on Tuesday after the procedure.
3.    Dr. Traynelis will review the studies and decide what he is going to do to/for Taylor.
4.    He will call Dr. Doerr here in Athens---who will fight/go to bat for us with United Health Care so
       that we can afford to have Dr. Traynelis be Taylor's neurosurgeon.
      At our meeting in Chicago with Dr. Traynelis he said, "I would really love to be the doctor who
      finally helps your son."
5.   So, there you have it.  We will go to a huge PLAN B if insurance denies all of this.   Gulp. Throw
6.   Hope WITH us---for us, beside us, around us.  HOPE.

  1. That one statement: "I would really love to be the doctor who finally helps your son." says it all about that doctor! I adore him without knowing anything more about him than just that he truly cares about Taylor. This is going to happen! I cracked open a fortune cookie in my mind just now that read, "Taylor's going to get his successful surgery performed by his doctor of choice AND the insurance is going to pay for it willingly!"


Thank you so much for your comments. I know it's scary to put yourself out there. I really appreciate your being on this journey with me. You really are brave..
