Doctor brought out the big guns today...

November 24th, 2009 at 10:34 pm

I called in sick this morning. I rarely take time off because I am too sick to work...usually time off means I am taking care of my mom or someone else...But I hardly slept last night and woke up having a hard time breathing. So, I went to the doctor. I guess that was a good decision cause now I am on strong antibiotics, prednisone and a much stronger inhaler for the asthma. If this doesnt kick the cough and congestion, I dont know what will!

Good news...because we have dual insurance, no co-pay for the visit. My dr gave me a free sample for one of the meds (which was the most expensive and would have cost $35 if Id had to buy it) and the other two were $12 little output for hopefully much needed relief.

I will probably have to have one of my DDs buy the food for Thursday. I have ZERO energy, wobbly legs and my brain just feels 'fuzzy'. Sigh...sucky time to be sick!!!

    At least the dual-insurance took care of the co-pay, and it sounds like your doctor was great about the samples to help you out. That really does lead to a difference, having the caregiver in your corner! I hope you feel better soon...
