This year we have experienced an impact on our income when Aaron had to unexpectedly switch jobs last September. He is blessed to now have a position with Glenpool Middle School working alongside the amazing nursing staff there. This is perfect given Kaylee will be recovering for much of the spring trimester and he will be there readily available to assist her; however, the decreased income and change in insurance during her treatment is creating some extensive medical expenses that we were not able to anticipate. We know she will meet her out of pocket maximum that we have been told is $4,000 by the insurance company. We will also have expenses in the way of hotel and travel costs for the week she is in the hospital and her subsequent follow up visits with her surgeon. We have already spent about $750 for x-rays and travel.
Some have asked what they can do to help us during this time. We have great family and friends to help out at home and so what would help us most is, for those who can, to provide funding toward her expenses. However, we do not want anyone to feel obligated to help out if you are not able. We, more than anything else, need everyone's prayers during the surgery and during her recovery. It will be a struggle for her to not get to play soccer this spring along with the fact she is very anxious about the surgery in general. She is not a fan of needles (it was nearly impossible to get an IV in for her oral surgery a year ago; we had to go to 2 different oral surgeons and basically restrain her to get it in) so we will all be relieved once the surgery is over and we can move forward in helping her to recover and retrain her muscles and body. We are so blessed that it is possible to correct her condition but we know that the first few weeks are going to be rough for us all. Please share with others who are willing to pray for Kaylee during this process (and her parents). We appreciate everyone's support!
