No call back from the doctor’s office yesterday, so first thing this morning, I phoned again. I was told they were working on it, and that I would get a call back by 3 p.m. If I hadn’t received one, then to phone them back again.
I got a phone call around 12.40 p.m. to say that there are only the 2 medications, one too expensive, and the other one on backlog at all the pharmacies I tried. The doctor had said to apply for a 30 day sample of the $1,106.09 one. They had filled in part of it, but they needed our gross Income Tax amount for last year.
I asked if I could come down with the tax return, as I was going to boxing at 3 p.m., and this is just around the corner from there. No, my husband had to come with me, as they needed his signature.
I drove down shortly after the phone call, and I told my husband the figure to enter on the form. He dated, and signed it, and we were done. I asked if the manufacturer would continue with the medication after the 30 day supply. She said ‘No’, and hopefully the other one will be in stock by then. I have to control my husband’s potassium intake, which I have done for years, and hopefully one or other of these medications will arrive in the near future.
I will write a post when we get either one. I know that we will qualify for the expensive one, as a year of the meds would take half of our yearly income.
