Akila is disabled

Wahoo!! Just got the letter from the SMRT (State Medical Review Team), and they have designated Akila as disabled. Wahoo again. This means she will qualify for MA through TEFRA (we will have to pay each month, but it is worth it).

I will still have to wait for info from Hennepin County to do start the MA process, but this is really good news. The birthday party went really well this afternoon, the teenagers from Dance Endeavors are totally fabulous. They were kind and loving to Akila, gave her really sweet gifts, and made her feel very special.

Two of my nieces (Haleigh and Natalie- yey- I have Natalie to help me again, even if just for one night), and nephew (Isaiah), are sleeping over. So far so good, but we have a few hours left. I am hoping for no meltdown, but if (when) it happens, I will be ready! After all, she is disabled. Wahoo!!!

Congratulations! They (SMRTR) noticed!

I'm glad you made it through the SMRT process. It's a lot of paperwork and I was anxious about it when we did it, but it opens doors for our kids and that's what's important.

Yay! Isn't it sad when we find out someone thinks our kids is disabled!? Whatever it takes!
