A Few Random Things
I left corporate America on February 1st, and have been on my own since then. It has been a nice change (beset with a new group of worries, but refreshing none-the-less) and we’ve been doing okay. That said, it has been interesting with our insurance provider. Now, we’ve been making COBRA payments on time, since they’ve become due – funny though, almost every single therapy session has been kicked back to us. In fact, in mid-June, we started receiving denial/non-payment paperwork all the way back to mid-February. Very interesting….Kim is our in-house guru on dealing with insurance companies – I’m sure we’ll get it all worked out, but I find it funny that as soon as I’m not on the corporate payrolls – well, you follow my drift.
Oh, and Demetrius now is turned down for therapies. They aren’t essential anymore. Again, funny how this works this way. Never been ‘non-essential’ previously…but I wasn’t COBRA payment-ing previously, was I? We’ll see on this too…..we can argue for it (luckily, we’ve taken Demetrius out for the summer, he’s in alot of camps and vacationed at the beach, etc…) but we probably won’t do that until we get ready for school to begin in mid August.
I did some grocery shopping before Kim and the kids got back and I picked up the ‘wrong’ type of ice cream, a low-fat/no sugar version of chocolate, made with Splenda. Anyone have any issues with their wee-ones and Splenda ice cream? Any wiggin out by your auties/aspies? About 1/2 an hour after he had some Demetrius got real whiney, then he wanted to wrestle for some sensory integration, then he went into a giggle mode like I’ve never seen, all tied into some weird behavior (he kept taking his head and putting it under the bathroom faucet and squealing and laughing…right after his shower). We were a bit dumb-founded and Kim thought it might be the Splenda. True. So I’m asking ya’ll. Also, it could be that he was up past 12:30am on Saturday night after getting back from Kansas on his flight, so he might be way tired too…and it manifested itself this way.
Anyone got any ideas?
