Happy Christmas Eve 2016

We're all smiles in this photo, partly because of the joy of attending our neighbors' wedding, and partly because of the joy of another year of life. For sure, Denise still has ups & downs as she does life with issues secondary to her Valley Fever infection and the Voriconazole that keeps the cocci that causes it in check. But still much better than her first "Christmas with Cocci" photo in 2005
One of the more amusing things we're grateful for: Denise's doctors finally were able to get it through to the our insurance company that the protocol for cocci meningitis is lifelong medication. So our insurance company approved our request for Voriconazole (they were trying to revert to the much cheaper Diflucan, which did not work for her). And the authorization is valid from 12/22/2016 to 12/31/9999 (yup, several thousand years into the future), and the number of refills is 999. So, yeah, that should probably prevent her and her doctors from having to deal with the red tape again when going through the insurance company mail-order pharmacy.
