We're spending another night in Seattle tonight so that tomorrow isn't as much of a hassle. We have to take Elisabeth to Portland for a doctor's appointment (after my lovely post of how healthy we are- haha!)- but anyway, I figured it would be kinder on all of us if we visited the doctor in Portland on our way home from Seattle. Otherwise we'd drive down today (4-5 hours), and then drive back up and down (another total of 3 hours). I thought that instead, we could just drive ~3 hours down to portland, go to the doctor, and then drive the last 1.5 hours afterward. Great idea, eh?
Today, I am extremely grateful for health insurance. Drew and I both had shady insurance deals growing up, and when we were done with undergrad, we didn't have any insurance for a year until grad school started...it was just too expensive.
This year, we decided to opt out of my insurance because of some district benefits I got for doing so. We were able to do this because Drew has pretty good insurance with his work.
I am so glad we have insurance for so many things. I can't imagine having a baby without insurance...that would be murder! And the reason we're going to Portland is only because we have insurance...otherwise I'd just keep on going. (intestinal issues). Elisabeth's doctor and I both doubt anything is wrong, but we decided we would take her to a pediatric gastroenterologist just in case.
