We are asking for donations to help cover Gavin's medical and other related expenses. The estimated annual medical expense is $12,000.

We have been going to our normal therapy appointments to treat Gavin’s neuropathy and for a few weeks in a row Gavin's OT therapist kept asking if we had gotten Gavin's eyes checked before. I asked her why...because she had just asked me the same thing last week. She said she noticed that when she was working with Gavin, he would constantly bring things close to his face. So I asked where we should go and she gave me a referral and so we went today to have Gavin's eye exam done. I wasn’t really thinking anything of it other than maybe he was going to need glasses. Well, unfortunately, that is not the news we received today. I was not prepared for what the eye doctor told us. She told us that Gavin needs vision therapy (if you are like me you are asking what is that) because Gavin's vision doesn't converge so he sees 2 of things. Our little guy has been walking around for I don’t know how long seeing double. I can’t start to say how scary that sounds that he is seeing double. He was very brave when they had to dilate his eyes and the machines they used to test his eyes. The optometrist told us he will need at least 2 months of vision therapy and that insurance will not cover it because it is considered an exclusion. For us that means that it will cost $1,120 for two months (~$560 each month) he will have to go back to his ophthalmologist every 8 weeks to determine when we can stop.
In addition to this, my car has been in the shop for about a week now and still isn’t fixed. They originally found an issue with the suspension and the suspension pump had to be replaced. They also found 2 leaks that also had to be fixed by replacing a hose. Our mechanic was amazing and has helped us every step of the way but the parts needed have been very expensive. Now we are looking at having to replace the bag in the rear that keeps the car lifted. We have also been advised that we will also have to replace the other bag on the passenger side within a couple of months of this repair. So far, our estimated cost for this repair is around $1,500 and could increase to over $2,000 if we have to replace the other side sooner rather than later. The car is still in the shop and hopefully it will be ready soon because I really need my car back. Needless to say, this has been a very difficult month financially.
If nothing else please share!!
