a bump in the road

Once again our plans have changed.  Insurance seems to think that our flight back to utah is non emergent so they are only willing to pay for 80% of the bill leaving us with a huge portion that we just cant afford.  The doctors are going to call and explain on monday why Capri does need to be moved and why she cant just fly commercially to hopefully help them understand.  If they still disagree however we will need to stay in rochester until she is fully better and able to fly home commercially ;(

We spent the whole day having visitors from throughout the hospital coming to see us and say goodbye.  More than a few tears were shed realizing that this may be the last time i ever see any of these people.  Dr Oliver came in to see us and give me a hug.  He sat in our room for 15 minutes telling me how he prays for Capri every night and how much cares about the 2 of us.  He told me what an amazing mom i was and how much he admired me.  This man who is one of the most amazing people i have ever met admires me?  It was such a sweet sentiment and it made my whole week.  Everyone we have met in Rochester have been such outstanding people and i truly am going to miss each and every one of them. 

We will be here at least until the middle of next week possibly  the week after now.  Hoping to figure out all of the kinks with insurance and get our family back together as one.
