Addendum to this morning’s post 😅😅😅

I realized I left you all hanging and wanted to give you a pain update. After my onco called in the pain meds at 6 a.m. this morning, I called CVS to find out when the prescription would be ready. That’s when I learned from the recording the pharmacist wouldn’t be in until 10 a.m. because it was a holiday. I texted friends to see if anyone had spare pills lying around. Kim responded (Ben nicknamed her Florence Nightingale) and she drove up to get them to me. So I did get pain relief and am feeling much better. And Kim is the permanent holder of the K gratitude letter as in addition to filling my freezer with food, she came up here (still in her pjs although she did volunteer that she had brushed her teeth) to deliver drugs to me.

I also wanted to share with you the reason CVS gave me this morning that the prescription wasn’t covered. It was because I had already filled 2 prescriptions in a bricks and mortar store in the last 2 months and I am required to use my mail order prescription service beyond two in a two month period. OMG, the poor pharmacist who had to break that news to me that I would need to wait for a week from Monday to get any pain meds. Of course I paid out of pocket to get the prescription but how many people cannot afford to do that?

And honestly, I couldn’t make this stuff up. I pride myself for being proactive about everything medical care but how does the average person deal with this absurdity? 

love, Laurie
