my wife and I lost our son, Declan Padraig Shea on Dec 21st last year at 31 weeks. We are now pregnat again, by the grace of God, and our Dr. has her on Lovenox. I inject her everyday. The issue is, our insurance only covers 50% and it is around 1600 a month, us spending 800 of that. We have already paid ove 1200. Does anyone know if I can buy it for less?? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Tell your doctor the situation and ask if you can switch to Heparin instead. It is kind of the generic and much more economical. Not exactly the same, but does the same blood thinning, essentially. She may or may not need more than one injection per day with the heparin. Let us know what the doc says.

I'm very sorry to hear you and your partner are dealing with pre-eclampsia- an extremely serious condition. It would not be the "bad guy" to limit the neighborhood kids. If it's uncomfortable to set the limit I would tell the neighbors it is doctor's orders. The doctors said, she can not do X,Y,Z so for now kids will have to stay outside. Has she been put on bed rest?
