It is ridiculous the whole centrelink stuff. We only get carer allowance despite all the medical issues Ash has and costs of therapies we pay out. My husband earns too much to get carer payment even though I am unable to go back to work more than a couple of hours a week and Ash can't go into any child care as he may get sick and it may trigger his epilepsy which is life threatening. Just so frustrating. We got the paed to do our paperwork and got apporved straightaway. We get a helath care card for Ash which is great becuase I would be spending at least $100 a month on his meds otherwise.
MHW- could you get your paed to do the paperwork? you guys should definately get it.
Forevermine- I can't believe that you wouldn't get it as there can be alot involved with CF, lots of tests, hospital stays, special diets, meds and your DD is ng fed partially too (she should be eligible just on those grounds as that is time consuming in itself).
Busy week ahead next week got paed, therapy appts OT, physio (new one) and hearing home visits. Hope everyone has a good weekend.
