We have had 3 terrible weeks.

A big hello to Ed. Gorgeous here.

The church is so good to us we use 4 rooms. They have a Food Pantry. To show our appreciation for only charging us $50 a month...the first meeting of every month every member brings food for their food pantry.


Back to calling doctors...

No they were just so so Russ cannot eat Chinese food. I am still fighting. The eye drops they will cover I just went too soon better not spill any. Crazy. Russ and Tom at the doctors I hope they do not come back woth bad news. I am not in a good mood so not messaging anyone until I quiet down. Npw I need to find out will a new prescription be authorization enough or does the doctor's office have to call the phramacy? In between duels I am doing the laundry. Hugs,Reed

Hey Marie. I've been lately too about going by ppls pages. Well to be honest it's been babysitting 2 of the g-kids and today it's all 3 kinda puts a bug in ur system LOL!

Oh I so know what Reed is talking about with the generics and some of them not being generic and the insurance company. I've delt with Unicare myself.

Nothing much going on around here right now, K's stress test came back off and if he dosen't get into his Cartologist his surgery will be cancelled on Thursday just waiting for him to call.......

Good Morning,Marie. I am late. I have been fighting with the insurance company. I have Medicare. My Gap used to be Blue Cross/Blue Shield through the town of Arlington. Ignoring the 4 unions they put us in the state plan. My Gap now is UNICARE. They refused 5 of my refills. I must get a Generic. Some of my pills do not have a Generic. I have to go to PCP Endo Eye doctor ortho and they MUST authorize me to take the name brand. This is uncalled for. Insulin does not have Generics. I guess I am stuck. I will have to do it.

I have 5 egg rolls...can I freeze them? He also brought chicken lollipops and Beef and Brocoli with other veggies. I think that might spike me. I finally got my BG to 106. Russ sees doctor at 12 Tom will go with him. He is still coughing. 42 degrees this morning. I had to put on the heat. I hope Ed is doing OK> These are crazy days. I never heard of all I have to go through. I told the phramacist I would pay for the eye drops. He said it would be over $100. What is going on with you today? I hope youare doing ok. Sorry I am in such a fighting mood. HUGS,Reed

Good to hear from you!!

I learned to treat my number like that from DINO... so it's been passed around the TuD community :)

Our little A loves the water. It's fun to watch him discover new things.

I go back to teaching on Tuesday. It was nice to have January off... I need to get my lesson planning started and get back in a rhythm.

Hugs to you!!

Hi Marie. What a late morning. I had called the pharmacy with 7 refills. When I got there I got 2. My NEW insurance company would no refills unless I go back to the doctor and get new scripts. Brand name refills my co-pay will be $50. I will ask my doctor to give me Generic. I did get Lantus and Novolog Medicare pays for most ot that so my Coo-pay $25. The town where I worked did no favors for the retirees with this plan. HUGS,REED

Hey Marie. Thanks for letting new folks know about today's event! That's a great idea. And good catch about the "refresh" thing. Yeah, I think telling people to click on "home" again is the simplest way to convey it.

Good work, lady!
