Kain is coming home TODAY

Oh. My. Gosh.
The therapist called yesterday afternoon and said that Kain is being discharged today. I don't know why. Every time I tried to find out why I got some kind of verbal run-around, but having been a nurse I think the gist is that his insurance isn't wanting to pay for any more time. Insurance Companies, btw, are at the top of my fecal roster, even before Every Lawyer I've Ever Hired, and Fast Food People That Overstuff Your Bags So That They Don't Close And Your Food Gets Cold On The Way Home. Therapists may be soon placed on the list too. Because after meeting with her just last week and making a Treatment Plan with Official Goals to use in the coming weeks of family therapy, he is being dropped, just like that. I have been scrambling to get ready. More on that later.

When my husband and I worked at a home for troubled teens, the same thing would always happen. The teens would be in the treatment center for about 2 weeks and then their Medicare would run out and then they would return to us with no further help or feedback. It's a very broken system. I'm sorry you had to experience it. We will be praying for you all.

Oh, no. Coming home without getting the help he needs? God bless you all.

Yes! Kain is on medicaid. We were able to get it for him because we are his guardians, so our income doesn't count as his income. It's been a blessing with all of his medical needs, and it covers his outpatient therapy much better than our own insurance would, but for this hospitalization I think it caused his discharge. :(
