Evie got another Synagis shot this week. Because she is a heart baby, immuno compromised and has pulmonary issues, her wonderful doctors ensured she receive another year of protection against the very dangerous RSV virus.
Anyone want to guess what the price tag is on these little suckers….???
I thought Id heard wrong when the nurse told me the first time.
And that’s monthly folks! Liquid gold! Can I just say how grateful I am for insurance!
During the RSV season, children that qualify receive this injection every 25 days from September through March. Multiply that by her third winter now and…….
Yes, we’re talking boo-koo bucks!
The wheels in my head have started turning…lets see now…
A Life Flight in a Chopper
+2 weeks in ICU
+2 weeks in the Step-down Unit
+Open Heart Surgery
+5 Vent Insertions
+3 Blood Transfusions
+1 CT Scan
+Regular appointments with 6 Specialists
+3 More Surgical Proceedures
+100 plus Blood Draws
+760 days (and counting) on multiple medications
= More than you and I collectively will spend in a lifetime!
Worth every penny is:
+Pinching her thighs and hearing her belly laugh
+Seeing her listen while Tristan reads to her
+Clipping bows in her hair
+Hearing her say Ma-Ma
+Jamming with her while she boogies to “Dancing Queen”
+Painting her itty-bitty toenails
+Watching her pucker up and kiss her Daddy
+Scrunching curls after a bath
+Sharing my lipstick
+Kissing her as she sleeps
+Holding her when she doesnt
+Smelling her sweet Evie-ness
+Stealing her nappy blanket to wash it
+Looking into these big blue eyes
