This walker was supposed to be his birthday present, but he looked ready for it the week before, so we gave it to him early. Good thing we did, because
by his birthday he wasn't using it anymore.
He had grown past the need.
New Skills Then, New Skills NowOther skills don't come so easily, but support is still needed.
Medicaid for Waiver ServicesWe were denied for Medicaid, so we need to go through more
Now that we have guardianship it's harder. Seems MAX's signature is needed, not ours.
The value is too small for a stockbroker to be interested in working with us, but enough to put Max barely over the limit as of midMarch.
MidMarch is KeyHis speech therapist is a snowbird. We don't have speech therapy when she's in Florida, so the SSI money doesn't go down as quickly. We make up for that when she returns, but, when the money was checked, she had been gone since December and returned two weeks later.
Maybe i should have appealed. i didn't, because i knew that we'd known about that stock forever, and, though we need waiver services to do more for Max, his survival doesn't depend on it.
The Perdue DecisionBut someone else's did.
It seems that the agency has been found in violation of people's rights regarding the way they inform of denials. We were definitely informed inadequately of the reason for denial, and earlier we were misinformed about documentation to provide, so i have asked to join the Perdue Decision class action suit.
And maybe we'll get that stock sold by then. At least i've finally convinced MyGuy that an ArcII trust is a viable way to deal with the proceeds.
