Update on the alarm (and other random news)

Tuesday night...alarm at 5am. Mark got up with the BW and he was already headed towards the bathroom.

Wednesday night...NO ALARM!!! The BW woke up at 5:30am (he might have been woken up by my alarm, thinking it was his alarm LOL), got up and went to the bathroom, and went back to bed. I consider that progress!

In other news, we just found out that insurance decided to stop covering Alex's speech therapy.


We now have a pending $3500(!!) bill for speech. I am working on getting this straightened out but I am a little irritated that it takes them 3 months to let me know that we are no longer covered.

In more other news, we got a bid for the HVAC system at the "dirty house". We had been planning on about $10K for all of it and hoping (praying!) it wouldn't be much higher than that.

$6700. Wonderful, wonderful news. Balances out that $3500 from speech. ;)

So glad that BW is benefitting from the alarm - what great news! Your speech therapy news, on the other hand, totally stinks. Praying that you get it all worked out! And how great that the HVAC came in under budget, though I know you'd much rather save the surplus and not pass it on to someone else :)

So glad the alarm is working for you guys. It never did work for us, but the combination of medication and waking up our BW before I go to bed has completely gotten rid of our problem. Thankfully, the BW is waking up much easier than he did for the first two months. Some nights I would have to walk them down the bathroom and stand outside the door to make sure they actually knew what they were in there for! :)
