little and broken but still good

G's CI has been broken for 10 days now.  We're waiting for insurance to send a replacement.  We did learn that we can buy an insurance policy for it that is annually $650, but covers repair and replacement.  That is seriously worth it, obviously.  We just are trying to go through insurance if possible.  Usually the company is able to send us out replacements within 2 days.  But the governor of our fair state doesn't like medicaid, and didn't take the medicaid expansion.  And we have medicaid for G as well as the family insurance.  For a while the company wasn't contracted with either of his insurances.  Now they are contracted with the family insurance but not medicaid, so the family insurance cannot pay for repairs, that they would pay for, because of the medicaid. 

I've heard that you should not let people do things for you because then they will do things for you.  Such is the case in our having medicaid.

G really is deaf.  It's been educational for all of us to have to sign all the time with G.  He has become so oral at home.  I am very grateful for our sign skills.
