About 8 or 9 months ago our application to get Grace into Scottish Rite was rejected. I was devastated. It seemed like we had so many doctors and therapists and equipment suppliers and they were all at different places and it was becoming increasingly difficult to get everywhere and feel confident that Grace was seeing everyone and getting everything she needed. The primary purposes for us seeking to get into Scottish Rite were twofold...1) make sure that every medical area we needed to address was being covered and 2) everything at Scottish Rite is provided at no cost (equipment, procedures and doctors are so expensive).
So over the past 9 months I had reconciled myself to the fact that we weren't getting in and that it was okay. We were working through everything. Well, we are now in!!! We got a letter about a month ago with a scheduled appointment, which was yesterday. We meet with a team of doctors and therapists including an orthopedic doctor who confirmed that Grace's hips and spine were growing properly (Thank you God) and right now we don't need any orthopedic services but she will be followed by this doctor through their neurologist that we will meet later. He did say that Grace needed to have new AFOs as she has outgrown her others. Folks, this is another good thing....they casted her for her AFOs right there!!! We didn't have to make another appointment or go to another place. I was so grateful!! Thank you Scottish Rite!!
