Routine Doctors Visits

No Comments Uncategorized

Here’s the low down on our doctors visits.

3 kids see their special doctor 3 times a year and have blood work done ever 3 months. (Oh! Did I mention that the blood work is $1000 in lab fees per child!)

Needless to say, it’s a long process, but finally at the ripe age if 3 they become comfortable with going. Trust me, the first 2 years are harder on me than them.

Lots of tears between us and them. Lots of questions as to why… (And trust me…I have questions of why myself.)

We see some of the best doctors in Tampa and I can finally speak nurse, insurance and billing. It’s been a long road to get Shelby here. I was a rookie with Jake and learned a lot. I’ll be a pro with Abby. You have to be.
