10 weeks time flies!

Jackson is growing so quickly these days.  Here are some pictures of the little man...he has a kung fu grip in his play gym, a cute big boy outfit, and his adorable little feet!

Insurance Company: The Empire Plan: United Health Care

It is incredible to me what insurance companies will deny payment for when it comes to the heath of yourself and your child.  As of right now my insurance company has denied to pay 80% of Jackson's abdominal surgery because they believe that the doctor charged too much for performing the surgery compared to other surgeons in the area.  Upon calling them they repeated this statement to me and pretty told me that I should have shopped around for the cheapest doctor to perform Jackson's surgery.  Can you believe this?  Shop around for the cheapest surgeon to do my son's surgery instead of the most experienced, recommended surgeon?  I am in the process of a written appeal for this cost...I will be letting them know that I keep a blog.  And that they can find a bunch of mothers on babycenter and Facebook where this information will be posted about our situation.  I will keep you all posted about what happens next.  Just note that I have to call the insurance company at least once a week to have claims reprocessed!

hmmm, I think I would like a...

So Jackson and I went to the mall just to walk out of the cold, however, it was really crowded and it was hard for us to walk for exercise.  Then I saw Santa and said, "What the heck."  Here is our first picture with Santa Claus!!

Around the lake

It was such a nice day today...Jackson and I walked all the way around Skyline was a great exercise and the hills were killer pushing a stroller.  I had to take a couple rest stops but over all we did it in an hour...I am shooting for a little less next time around.

Neonatalogist Follow Up

Today Jackson met with Dr. Mangenello his neonatalogist...everything was perfect!  Infact, we do not need to see him again unless we notice any problems...WOW. Here is a recent pic of Jackson.
