Hodge-Podge Saturday!


Saturday, October 19, 2013



I have been behind all week! So I am trying to catch up with this Blog!

Many of you have asked about a health update....I haven’t really wanted to talk about it and most of the time not even think about it!

On Wednesday the clinic called and said that the Dr. was calling a prescription in because my sodium levels are in the pits again..He order almost NO WATER 32 oz/day and 4500 MG of salt per day plus the new prescription....Will do blood work again on Monday!

Now back to my comedy of errors week!

On Wednesday John goes to pharmacy to pick-up prescription only to find out that their computer is down and the pharmacy can't even tell him if the order got in....Thursday we were advised that this prescription was in BUT it had to be special ordered! So per their instructions he goes to pick it up at 10AM on Friday as scheduled, he gets there and is then advised that that it did indeed come in BUT it wasn't unpacked yet, to have seat and they would get to it shortly. Remember the pharmacy does not not work the same scheduled hours as my clinic...they have a nurse available until about noon on Fridays and it is now 1PM....the druggist called John to the counter and asked him what to do as my COPAY was $1185.37 (not a typing error) for a 5 DAY supply! I do not know about most of you but there was no way that I could afford it plus think about my prescriptions for the remainder of the year since I am on Medicare!

We had to make that decision on our own because it is now after hours for Friday! Think time...and I won't know until Monday the effect of making that decision! My choice no is to use tools I have been using. Thank-you Spark People for my Nutrition Tracker!!! What would I do without it right now?

Chemo is scheduled all week for the last week in month and a CT scan the 5th will determine and I QUOTE... IF CHEMO IS WORKING..trying to stay "up" and positive but it is really hard at the moment! Oh well such is life at times!

This is enough said about this subject.....

Let's have some fun! It is Saturday!

If you regularly stop by my Blogs you know that I have “fallen", in love with a Face Book Cat. So here is a wee bit of news!







I will post more from him this week-end!

    That had to have been a mistake on the co-pay. I would cal the pharmacy back on Monday and/or your insurance company.
I did not know about your problems and pray for you.

    I know that are a few organizations out there that help with co-pays for cancer patients; if you Google "copay help for cancer" that will bring up a list. I would post them here, but when I tried to give someone else help with a website, I found out Spark doesn't allow links to posted in comments.

I love Grumpy Cat too! emoticon

    That is just crazy and you need to have a talk with your doctors about pharmacy costs.
Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, you and your husband as well.
Love the kitty, and your sense of humor♥

    emoticon to you my dear friend. I'll be with you in spirit and pulling for a full recovery. You bring tears to my eyes with your courage and gentle soul. The medical cost is almost blackmail/ransom! Unreal.

  Thanks for the update on your health. The cost of medical care is horrible, terrible, Yuk. Now that is over! Had to get it off my chest. So wish you lived closer. We could get together and giggle and dance. You know how I love to dance. Can't always now with my COPD But you and I could at least get our toes moving and our fingers! Hey, we could finger dance together!!! emoticon Praying dear one that this all comes together for you. Take it a day at a time, or a minute whatever it takes! You are tougher than you think. Sending healing hugs and positive (((((vibes))))) ! Fill your mind and heart with good thoughts and know that you are loved. Pat emoticon

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I hope you put this right back where it belongs, back to the doctor who prescribed the medicine. They have a PDR (Physicians' Desk Reference) so they can come up with alternatives. And frankly, the doctor should have some idea of what the cost is going to be and discuss it with you before simply writing out a prescription.

You know in your heart of hearts that you choose to remain upbeat no matter what - because you are who you are and you are living as best you can!

    That is too expensive. Would mail order be less? My husband does that. I don't know if it would help.
You are in my prayers.
Try to enjoy the weekend!'

    Medicine costs are simply unreal these days - even with insurance. I am so sorry you have to be going through all this mess!

If it helps at all, know that you are in my thoughts often - hang in there, my emoticon emoticon

    We have some mutual friends here in SP. Like Hearts Think AND Feel Alike. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I have had my adventures with pharmacies and high co-pays, and I am sorry about the trouble. When I was a pharmacy tech, we often contacted the doctors if they needed to order something else due to high co-pays. I hope your pharmacy is supportive of you and John.

I always think about you and pray for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon
LOVE, CHELSEA
