Family, Fun, Fellowship, and Food

Monday, October 29, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, I had 15 family members here for a chili dinner with hot rolls. We had 3 kinds of crackers and corn chips for those who wanted frito pie. Since we aren't a big dessert family, we had mini pumpkin cupcakes for dessert.

2 of the girls took home containers of chili and we have enough left to have baked potatoes with chili topping tonight for supper. I will fix either green beans or broccoli with them.

A good time was had by all. I am so blessed that my girls, even though they can get really mad at each other, still like to have get togethers. My son, who is 90 minutes away, works 50 to 80 hours a week so very seldom gets to come. When he isn't working usually Sandi, daughter in law, is. They very seldom have the same hours. He drives truck and she works at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. My profile picture is their daughter and grandson.

Ran Out Of Meds......Ut Oh!!!

Thursday, October 25, 2012

I have been having rather lengthy discussions with Medco (our mail order pharmacy) and during the whole process, I ran out of some meds, especially my HCTZ. Therefore, I retained fluid and added 2 pounds to my weight. The med got delivered today so by next week this fluid should be off.

Someone in their accounting department didn't post or lost my payment so then I had to fax the check that cleared the bank. Well the intelligent person who I talked with gave me the wrong fax number so they didn't get my fax----now I have to resend it. So I could reorder my meds, I put them on my credit card. Hopefully they will be here tomorrow or Saturday.

UGH!!!!!!!!!! Businesses...........GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    That alone is a very good reason to enable you to go directly to your local pharmacy especially if you run out .... we used to have Medco ... golly, believe it or not, they are better than this express scripts DH uses now .... sure glad you will get your meds soon. Roc

    Did you enjoy the time with not running to the bathroom so often, though? I was on HCTZ for years, and what a difference when my prescription was lessened.

I DO hope you have it all straightened out. It is very irritating when we have to correct someone else's mistakes in such matters.

Have a good day!
