>Respite Care

>We talked to the doc at length today and he talked about respite care. We were denied respite care last fall because we haven’t spent enough medicaid dollars. In order to qualify we have to spend more than 15,000 dollars in medicaid dollars. Since we are trying to keep M at home as much as possible, we don’t spend the medicaid dollars.

Doc thinks that we may qualify this year. So keeping our fingers crossed.

Also hoping to hear about our application for SSI. Since this is our first application I expect to get denied.
