I haven't written a blog in quite a while. Not a whole lot has been happening. I've been trying to get back into the gym more after that month where it seemed like we were travelling all the time. Colorado the end of September, beginning of October, hip replacement 3 weeks after that with home therapy for 6 weeks, Nebraska for dad's 90th, back to Nebraska for mom's memorial service and then trying to get back on track and lose those travel pounds. Good news is I have lost all but 1 of the pounds and need to get a lot more off now. I am getting into the pool three times a week for water aerobics and trying to get in at least twice a week for the cardio machine at least. My daughter did come in with me a couple times to work out-it was nice to have the company.
Last week I tried ordering a refill of my two medications-one for the premature heart beat and one for acid reflux. Neither one got refilled-the insurance company didn't like that the doctor was ordering Nexium for twice a day so denied that and the cardiology office and pharmacy couldn't seem to connect. I stopped by the pharmacy several times asking about them and called both doctors. I spoke to someone at the cardiology office and she said she was sure she had gotten the refill done as she remembered my name-it is kind of unforgettable. lol Well, she looked and didn't see it but I did need an appointment. Okay, appointment made so she said I'll do the prescription right now...okay done. Still nothing from the pharmacy and they said they had NOT received it.Finally yesterday after water aerobics on my way to my massage I stopped by the office and asked them again. This time they said they had no record of ever getting the request. REALLY?? Anyway they did get it done but by then I had already been without the medication for 6 days. I'm sure the doctor won't be happy to hear that next Monday when I see him. Yesterday I got a note from the insurance company that they have decided I CAN have the Nexium twice daily so I got that filled today. Totally crazy!!
We had dinner at church this evening. I had a full plate but after a couple bites I passed it over to my husband. I did eat the Danish and then the parfait I had purchased at the grocery store-yogurt with fresh fruit and granola. Now THAT was really good.
So now you know how my last week has been going. The really good news is my husband got the dryer repaired so we don't have to make any more trips to the Laundromat!
