A few weeks ago, I got a call from the Medicaid office. They needed some information to finish up Levi's paperwork for his yearly renewal. Apparently, they didn't do something they should've done in OCTOBER, but that's not the point of my story.
The woman on the phone was very pleasant, explained what happened, assured me that Levi was still covered on his Medicaid plan, and asked if I'd just answer a few questions for her.
Her first question was, "What is wrong with him?"
I responded with silence.
After a little while, she restated her question and asked, "What is Levi's diagnosis?"
He has Down syndrome, but there is nothing wrong with him. Thank you very much.
We actually think he's pretty great.
