Stop the Drama
The past two days have been just one thing after another. Caleb is on some new medication and the last prescriptions we got were written by his child psychiatrist, who is out of network. He ran out of his medication so I dropped it off at the pharmacy to be filled before heading out to the park. I got home with a message from the pharmacy- the 2nd medication was on backorder. Perry goes to pick up the first and they haven't even filled it, since they thought I meant that he would be picking up the paper prescription (both medicines were on one sheet) when I meant the pills themselves. They say they can fill the one but that we would have to get another prescription for the second. He finds out that another pharmacy nearby has the 2nd one so he goes there. They inform him that since the prescribing doctor is out of network, we would have to pay full price for both (only one is available as a generic). I tell Perry to come home since it's after 7 (he had been at this since 6:15) and I would call Caleb's doctor in the morning. I call this morning to have the doctor write the prescriptions, which I arranged to pick up from her office. I got a call about 30 minutes later- his doctor is out for the day and the other doctors usually don't write prescriptions for ADHD patients that they don't see. They found one doctor he had seen before to write one for him. I went to the store to get some stuff after this conversation and get the mail. Our dentist is moving about an hour's drive away. I already had it on my plate to find an optometrist to check Mischa, a doctor for me for migraine meds, and now I have to find a new dentist. Of course, Caleb and Mischa have an appointment on March 8th, so now I'm sure that will be pushed back quite a bit. I don't think there is enough chocolate in the world at this point.
