"God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me."
We all know that God has a sense of humor. How else could he have created the giraffe?
Well, as dyed-in-the-wool Kansas State fans, it pains us to say that we are thrilled that, most likely, Tammy's bone-marrow transplant will take place at the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City. They told us they would take good care of her, even though we are Wildcats.
Yesterday, we were able to add Tammy to David's health insurance policy, giving Tammy secondary insurance. We had always kept them separate because it was more economical. But KU Med Center is in-network with David's provider, so much of what her carrier declines should be picked up by the secondary insurance. We'll find out for sure in the next couple of days, but it looks pretty good.
It's funny that we didn't think of it previously. David is an insurance agent, and Tammy works for a healthcare provider in the billing department where she is very familiar with secondary insurance. Neither of us thought about it. Our wonderful patient advocate, Betsy, who has been a huge blessing to us already, suggested it. After crying tears of joy, we laughed at our selves for not being able to see the forest for the trees.
