Preparing for John Tracy: Medication

I ran down to Rite-Aid to pick up Nolan's Nexium prescription. This is slightly unfortunate timing, because it means that his prescription will run out during our trip to John Tracy. We have two options to obtain enough medication for the little guy:

1. Implore the insurance company to approve some extra medication prior to our trip, so that we will not run out during our three week stint in California.

2. Go to California, run out of medication, and get the prescription refilled from a distance.

We're attempting option 1 first, hoping that our insurance company will approve the extra medication. If that doesn't work, then we'll go pharmacy-hopping in California to find a place that stocks Nexium (the CA pharmacy will have to call our pharmacy to get the prescription).

In any case, we're getting some final ducks in a row before our trip out west.

Eleven days and counting!

So exciting! I met a rep from JTC at the AG Bell exhibition hall. They are just so wonderful. It's a blessing to have such a great resource available.

I have nothing but the highest praise for John Tracy- they are a wonderful group. I am so excited (and thankful) for this opportunity!

I'm getting more excited for you and Nolan as your time at JTC approaches! I can't wait to hear about your experience. And if you do run out of medication while you're there, the staff will get on the task like a fat kid on a Smartie because they are eager like that!

OMG- you have me laughing so hard. Thanks for the chuckle! We did get it approved- I have to edit this post (or write a new one, lol)!!!
