Surgery date

Little Dorrit will be having two surgeries on Thursday morning - the G-tube and Broviac. She will also be having an eye exam while she is under general anesthesia but the eye surgery will need to be done on a different date for various reasons. In the meantime, the discharge nurse is working to figure out how we can give Little Dorrit her care and medications at home and how home health will work with our insurance. Apparently, Ceprotin, the protein C concentrate Little Dorrit needs, is ridiculously expensive and not traditionally available at your neighborhood pharmacy so the discharge nurse is working on figuring all this out for us. Today, we had a good day at the hospital and I continue to hope for more of these.

Just a thought that you might want to get the Ceprotin and protein C concentrate shipped from Canada if you can. We get some of our meds from the North. They can be way less expensive.

Kelly, that is genius. I'm going to have to look into that. We still don't know how much it will cost through our insurance but they are working all that out.
