Just finished our 4 month appointment with Dr. Hart! George is 12lbs 2oz and Henry is 14 6oz! We are growing and somewhat happy after our shots! #onward #twinslife
We did it…our first official outing as a family. Now…we have taken the family to church numerous times, but that is not even a block from the house. This was a complete outing including a picnic dinner at Clemson’s Botanical Gardens, then to Clemson’s Bowman Field, and finally fireworks beside Clemson’s Baseball Stadium.
Here is my letter to UnitedHealthcare. It is real, it is raw, and it is straight forward.
There are so many families who find themselves in the NICU facing the daunting expenses after an emergency birth. Many are shipped to other healthcare systems during this emergency to receive top-notch care, yet fight the red tape of coverage inside their policies.
His name is Joe Bridwell. He is my mom’s dad, who past away in March 2011. I called him Pop. I am the oldest grandchild on my mom’s side with my mom being the oldest living child of my grandfather’s. As I was thinking about Pop and Henry, I remembered what I said during his memorial service. I had to take the funeral home’s audio CD and have it transcribed so I could pull the exact words from that day. What I found is what I said straight from the heart and matches all the reason Henry Joseph Rettew was named partly for my Pop. I took those words and edited some to bring context to path down memory lane.
