Fun with the grandkids

Sunday, October 20, 2013

It was a beautiful fall day here in Pennsylvania. We all went to Linvilla Orchards which has all kinds of fun fall activities and things to do. We had a fun time.

I am working on trying to get my meds so that I can stay here in Pennsylvania another month. I have prescriptions from my doctor in Mexico and letters, etc. but do you think a pharmacy would honor them...of course not!!!! It's the USA and I have to have a prescription from a licensed USA doctor. Of course I don't want to spend thousands of dollars to go though a bunch of tests to get diagnosed again just to get the prescriptions. So I have two things I can consider. Maybe one of you might know if it would be legal or not.....I could have my friends who are watching our house simply go buy them and send them fed ex. and just say they are vitamins. I am wondering if that would be okay? Or I can go on line to a Canadian company and see if I can get them that way. I can't believe how hard they make it here in the states to get my meds. I have a letter from my doctor, prescriptions, etc. Nice young pharmacist told me he just couldn't honor anything out of the states. What a shame for people who come to America and forget or need meds. Oh well, that is something that do like about living in Mexico....they are much more user friendly to us.

I do hope everyone is having a great week end. We have another beautiful fall day and will go and watch our 5 year old granddaughter play in a soccer game.

Have a good one!

    I agree with others to have your friends in Mexico fedex them and label it 'supplements'. They are supplements to your prescriptions that you forgot to bring along since your trip was longer than originally planned. Had you known before hand, you would have carried them along with you. Please don't try to get into the legal/illegal aspect. You will never win or get anywhere in this country because the lawyers own this place. You'll be wasting your time spinning wheel for nothing. The truth is anybody can mail anything to anyone in any country. It's a free world. If some friends of yours mail you something, it's not your responsibility and you had nothing to do with it. It's their own action. If it gets delivered to you, fine. That's what life is all about. Good fortune and good luck.

    My husband and I had a similar problem on vacation last summer. Even though he uses a national pharmacy, it wasn't as easy as you would think getting an emergency refill. However, if you home pharmacy is part of a chain that's here in PA (Walgreens, CVS, etc.) it can be done with a couple of long phone calls.

If not, I agree with your original idea to have friends pick them up. I wouldn't put 'vitamins' in the description field, though. 'Personal items' is more accurate. As long as it isn't a controlled substance (which your pharmacy probably wouldn't let them pick up anyway) I think it's fine.

    Love the photos!! You all look great!
Cheapest and more hassle free option likely to have your friends mail your medications.
Hope you can work something out..

Good luck,
