a message from Joyce: For the past 26 years, I have been a member of Kaiser Permanente. All three of our children were born under the Kaiser plan and all of our doctors are there. The only time we have ventured out of a Kaiser facility was for Sarah's open heart surgery and subsequent care. So just the thought of changing insurance carriers has caused me a bit of fear. But we must. Soon we will be on a Medical Mutual plan. It does open some doors. Like going outside of a Kaiser facility.
A few weeks ago I was mentioning to a friend that I just wish there was an adult Down syndrome clinic with some greater knowledge of the health issues related. Look what showed up in my email today...
...and how relieved I was when I saw that it is located at my beloved alma mater. I think Sarah will be thrilled to go to Ohio State for medical care. We have to wait until January to make the first appointment though. That's when the new insurance takes effect.
Just in case you are wondering about the eye. Today it looks fine. No redness. No puffiness. I am starting to keep a closer watch for allergy patterns, like food, shampoo, etc. Maybe I can get some clues before we head to a germ infested waiting room:)
