My Day

8:40 a.m. Took Ander to the doctor for screaming and complaining of a boo boo.

9:40 a.m. Left doctor's office. They were calling the pharmacy in the next hour or so with scripts for croup and an ear infection. Went to Barne's and Nobles to wait out pharmacy. Doctor said to give him meds this morning, so no waiting until after work.

10:30 a.m. Arrive at pharmacy. They say 20 minutes, as script just arrived.

11 a.m. Pharmicist reports that insurance rejected us. Asks for his social security number. I look up Ander's number, and give it to him. Roam around Target, Chirstmas shopping since I'm stuck there anyway. At least Ander is in a good mood.

11:15 a.m. Another rejection. Are you sure you gave us the primary cardholder's ssn? Um, no, 'cause you never said "primary cardholder." Look it up.

11:45 a.m. Finally get meds and call Sunny to eat. After all, Ander is required to eat with his meds and now it's three hours after he was supposed to take them. He is again showing signs of pain.

12 noon Eat lunch with Sunny, Jon, and an aunt. On the plus side, Aunt holds a sleeping Ander and pays for lunch.

12:45 p.m. Ander wakes. Try to get food in him, which is necessary with his meds. He refuses. Try to give him the one med that doesn't require food. Insert syringe 5 times. Nothing. Realize that medicine is bottle, though bottle clearly says suspension.

1:15 p.m. Arrive back at Target. Pharmacist calls me Kristy. Nope, I didn't get a med today. I just get so many that he knows my name. :/ Get water added to the med.

1:30 p.m. Sitting at a coffee shop. As soon as Ander wakes, I'll give him food and meds. But he is still sleeping.

Did I get any work done yet today? No. If I drive down, I won't have time to get anything done. Sigh. This sucks.

Etcetera.

Not sure you did this or not, or if it was offered, but next time I would ask for a sample if the doc wants him to have the meds quickly. There are all sorts of things that could have gone wrong and him not get the meds on time. And according to your mom, Ander definitely needed the meds!!!

On the plus side, it's always good to have the pharmacist know you personally!
