As many of you may have noticed, I deactivated my Facebook page earlier in November in an attempt to distance myself from social media at least until 2017. It’s been pretty nice actually. Since My FB is down, I cannot post updates on Austin’s FB page so, for the time being, I will use this again. It has been a year since I last posted on this blog! CRAZY!
Austin is doing much better since he was admitted for a one week stay on Nov. 2nd. In the hospital, he had his first CT scan which revealed minor air trapping in his right upper lobe and minimal atelectasis (collapse) of his lower left lobe. His cough has gone away and his energy level is back to normal.
We got home on Nov. 9th and on Nov. 10th, we put up all of our Christmas decorations per Austin’s request! He is really excited for Santa to come this year!
In other news, we are getting a taste of what it will be like to be on our own insurance wise with Aetna. As of now, they have yet to decide whether or not they will cover any of the $5,400+ in claims from Austin’s hospital stay. Luckily, California Children’s Services should be helping us out with the medical bills until early 2017, but after that, we are on our own. We are still trying to raise some money to put in Austin’s Medical Fund Account so that we will have some $ to fall-back on for medical costs.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving ❤
