I posted this picture to FB last Saturday evening (2/10/18), with the following –
A precious friend sent me this balm today.
I needed the reminder. Yesterday evening, we found out that insurance had denied payment for the very pricey drug we plan to try for bringing up Katie’s neutrophil count.
Hard for this mamaheart to be so close to actually moving forward with something and then hit a roadblock. It’s not final – insurance companies are well-known for the process this sets in motion. But it was discouraging news for the moment.
I am so thankful for the Firm Foundation, the Sovereign King of Creation. May He consume my dross and refine my gold!
It was not lost to me on Friday evening that the call coming after Dr. Max’s office was closed… this was no accident. I think the Lord wanted me to sit with Him over the weekend, being reminded of His power, sovereignty, and goodness. He is so sweet to me. It was such a wonderful reminder of His control over every piece of this. When our hearts truly want His will, we can rest in His hands, knowing that whether He chooses what we would choose, or something completely different, He is weaving our story for His glory, and for good.
Monday and Tuesday brought multiple phone calls with the HemOc clinic, and two more denials for the Rx, followed by an approval call. Today, the medicine went out via overnight FedEx, and we have a training session to learn how to do the shots at home scheduled for Friday afternoon. If it arrives early enough tomorrow, we might move that up a bit.
The plan is to check labs after a week to see how the Rx is working. May the Lord continue to make the way clear, and may we continue to follow our Shepherd step by step!
Soli deo gloria!
