Jonas leg update

Yesterday Jonas went back to the doctor to have his leg looked at and get his aircast off. At least that's what I thought. It turns out instead, that the leg is still healing, the bone is filling in and the doctor is very happy with the progress it's making. Diagnosis, it looks good, but he's got 2 more months of wearing the aircast. He still can't do a lot, but he doesn't have to be quite as careful with it anymore.

Now I just wonder if the hospital SNAFU from his first ER visit gets worked out. Since the diagnosis from the ER was not an Emergency Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois is not covering it as an ER trip. I've been on the phone with Blue Cross several times and with the hospital several times. today I was on the phone with both of them. Things are finally moving in what should be my favor, but if the result is not satisfactory, I may have to contact a lawyer or go through some other method. The real problem is that the initial diagnosis was sore ankle, because they didn't even look at his leg where it was broken.
