That's what I was going to say earlier tonight when my Mom called me and
said "Look who is the announcer on the show to light the Christmas tree at
the state house!" It was the pastor from our church!.
Anyhow, I was going to mention that - I've seen many ads about if you can't
afford the medicine or have troubles paying for it, the manufacturers will
help. It's an idea that is long overdue. Thanks, Leslie for saying it. I
probably would have forgotten by the time I got back to my computer.
Take out the FISH to email me.

Donna, please check with the drug manufacturer(s). Many have programs
that provide free meds to people who can't afford them. Best of luck with
finding a solution- it stinks when you need the meds and can't afford

LOL...........yes, Kelly, the removeable cast has been sooooo much
better. The hardest part has still been finding a comfortable way of
sleeping with it. Had only given me a bit of trouble the last couple of
days, pain wise. I think because it has become so loose from all the
swelling going away. The surgical sites themselves are still quite
sensitive and the skin around them quite sensitive, but hopefully with
time that will improve. Have really appreciated having the platform
attachment for the walker. That has been a tremendous help!
Go back this coming week to see the ortho doctor and am hoping he will
say no more cast since it has been 4 weeks already. He originally said
4-6 weeks. We'll see. On the other hand, might be better to keep it on
for another two weeks as our whole family is getting together up north
over new years, so will be pretty busy. Might be safer to keep it under
cover for a bit. I'm sure it is going to take a bit of therapy
afterwards to strengthen it again.
Nope, no chocolate here. I'm not a big chocolate fan (a little dark
chocolate, but that is about it!), but do have lots and lots of
Good-N-Plentys here to share and lots of almonds too! LOL
Has been very interesting and a huge blessing having the home health
care nurses coming in twice a week to help me with my infusions. They
have all been so nice and very interested in the whole thing. They have
all been very unfamiliar with the CVID and want to know all about it and
then about the IgG and the differences between the IV route and the
Sub-Q route. Interesting experience to say the least!
Am getting much more adept at typing one handed, although still have to
type it in several spurts (usually during commercials when watching tv).
Have been working the last week or so on my medications as come the
first of the year, will no longer have set co-pays for all of my meds. I
will have a set co-pay for generic meds, but will have to pay 20% of the
entire cost of the med when it is not a generic! OUCH!!! Notified my
doctors that I was going to have to stop at least 3-4 of my meds as
there is no possible way I will be able to afford them now. They are
looking in to ways to help me get those meds as they said I absolutely
can not stop them. Well, if you can't afford them, there isn't much
choice in the matter. So, don't know what will happen with all of this,
but should prove to be interesting. Will order one more round of all of
those meds especially, december 28th or so and that will carry me
through january, but then something is going to have to give.
Sorry I haven't been around at all, but always thinking of all of you
and praying that everyone is doing well!
1.) ANGELS EXIST, but some times, since they don't all have wings, we
call them FRIENDS......
2.) May God's richest blessings be
upon you both today and
throughout the year.
May His blessings flow through
you to touch the lives of
everyone you meet.
