Breakfast

Two ladies from the apartment management joined with the usual group for “coffee” this morning. This is the third or fourth management company that has handled these apartments since we arrived in mid February of 2021.

Ezekiel 24:1 In the ninth year, in the tenth month on the tenth day, the word of the Lord came to me:.
Ezekiel 35:15 Because you rejoiced when the inheritance of Israel became desolate, that is how I will treat you. You will be desolate, Mount Seir, you and all of Edom. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’ ”
Day 63

Quick sketches from life.

This afternoon we picked up my warfarin from Walgreens. FINALLY! The prescription has been corrected. On December 26 ’21 I received my last prescription refill from Walmart. It was a thirty day supply which meant I ran out at the end of January.

At the beginning of January our new insurance went into effect. The new insurance required us to move our medications to Walgreens. Walgreens required actual paper copies of the prescriptions rather than electronic images.

In my case, that meant making appointments with a non-VA doctor because the VA doctor could only write scripts for the VA pharmacy. All of this meant making an appointment to talk to the new doctor.

To refresh your memories of events of January ’22: Williamson county Texas had a higher rate of new Covid cases than anytime during the pandemic. This meant getting into the doctor took a long time. Finally in mid-March I placed an order for medications through Walgreens.

All meds were fine except the 2mg warfarin. The new insurance said it was too soon. Obviously confused by the fact that I had just received a 90 day supply of 5mg warfarin. A week or so of arguing my case, I was allowed to purchase the 2mg. However, the pharmacy filled it for 30 tablets rather than 30 days supply. Which meant that it only lasted a couple of weeks. Which of course, the insurance wouldn’t okay the refill because it was too soon.

At the end of last week I was able to get Walgreens to take a look at the wording of the prescription and realize they had filled it incorrectly. They got it straightened out with the insurance so that they could fill the order correctly. Yay!

On the way back from Walgreens we stopped at the Community Cupboard. We were hoping for some cookies. But no cookies were to be had. We did pick up some blueberry bagels.
They ask if we would be interested in a bag of frozen mystery meat. He explained that it was wrapped in a black plastic bag and he didn’t know what was in it.
We took it. Once home we found it to be a package of diced ham, a pack of turkey breast, and a ring of a semi dry beef and pork sausage.
