No Antibiotics this weekend....

The doctor called me last night around 5 PM to say the pharmacist would call me late Friday afternoon to confirm Henry's prescription was ready. Evidently it would take all day to compound and flavor the medicine. I hadn't heard anything at 4PM today so I called the pharmacy since they closed at 5PM. The woman said they had no record of the prescription. I called the pediatrician's office and they said they'd call me back. It turns out the pharmacist misplaced the prescription and cannot fill it until Monday or Tuesday. The doctor's office called the hospital to see if they could fill the prescription tonight but they cannot not fill it until Monday. It appears that compounding pharmacists don't work weekends or after 5PM in our town. There is no way Henry will take the medicine without the flavor so we will wait.

When I was changing Henry's diaper this evening Igor came in the bathroom and threw up on the bathroom floor. This is unusual for Igor because he has only thrown up when car sick. Before Igor went to bed last night he said he thought he had bugs in his tummy... hmmmm.... He was fine when he got up this morning for school. I called the pediatrician's office right before they closed (I'm pretty sure they recognize my voice when I say hello). They are going to test Igor for giardia and also for norovirus which is making the rounds in our town. Igor said he felt better after he got sick so I'm not sure what's going on with Igor's tummy. He will sleep with a trash can next to his bed just in case.... I will be bleaching doorknobs, handles, knobs and counter tops after everyone is asleep....

Oh, and the last big thing that happened in the last 24 hours- Our Health Insurance company wrote us a letter to say they canceled our policy. heavy sigh... Of course it's a terrible mix up. I hand carried paperwork to the insurance company today hoping to get it straightened out. They informed me that they can take up to 30 days to review the paperwork and reinstate our policy.... Uh, 30 days really doesn't work for our family. I plan on calling them everyday for a status until this is resolved. I know it sounds a little over the top but we really cannot be in limbo land for 30 days.

I'm sorry to hear that Henry is still sick and now Igor too. Hopefully Igor's is just a passing bug and not giardia.

Praying that your insurance reinstates asap!
