Travel Insurance

We found out today that we can get travel insurance for Lily's heart (and the rest of her except her tummy button). The button isn't really a drama as the new one she is getting comes with a "spare" that I can change myself if the first one becomes damaged. Worst case scenario I will have to put another NG tube down, but I can't see that happening. Maybe it would be a good time to make her learn to eat properly (just jokes!).

So, if anyone is traveling anywhere (including Australia), the Company is called CHI and I was put on to them via Harvey World Travel. We have up to $10 million medical cover so I think we will be ok! It is a huge weight off our mind - especially as when she was really touch and go in ICU we promised her that if she made it , we would take her to all the Disney parks when she's older (and all the Barbie dolls in the world - could be tough!). Thankfully I don't think she'll remember somehow.....
