    Doesn't come through Nuthatch, but a whole page is missing and I guess it will come through later. The last post is Lazarus commenting about Sunshine and then the next thing is Howie's post commenting on the dog. I am on my computer.

    Love that big dog. She is precious and I can look at her and see that she is gentle. Would love to pet her.

    Laura isn't coming this week. I don't know when she will be back. She called and said her Mother was sick and that she was going to Mexico. This is the second week. The worse part is my recycling. The ground is so uneven I am afraid to take it out. I can get to the garbage but the recycling is a different matter. Not sure what I will do about getting someone in. I dusted last week and I think that is alright for now, but guess I will have to steam mop the kitchen floor and my master bath, vacuum, I've already cleaned the toilet. So I just have to find a way to get the recycling out for right now. It's always something as all of you know.

    My Doctor's office called this morning and told me they were going to refill a prescription that I have to have. It is Synthroid. However, the Nurse said that while she was going to refill it "this time" that I have to have a physical. I told her I didn't want to come in during flu season if I could help it, so she made appointment for late April. I never have physicals and I hope this is not a complete one. There is something called a wellness physical and I am hoping that will be it.

    My brother went to Costco for me today to pick up my medication. He did not take a coupon from GoodRx, however the drug cost $18.73 for 90 days. The same drug for 90 days at Walgreens was $178.00. Both places were generics.

    GO FIGURE!!
    The owner of Costco has a very clear sense that there is a limit to how much profit he should make. That makes all the difference in this world.

    From Wikipedia:

    The company's rule is that no item may be marked up more than 14% over cost and no Kirkland Signature item may be marked up more than 15% over cost.[4] The company runs very lean, with overhead costs at about 10% of revenue and profit margins at 2%.[4] Costco's annual membership fees (US$60/year for Gold Star, US$120/year for Executive as of 2019)[47] account for 80 percent of Costco's gross margin and 70 percent of its operating income.[48]

    :) I went to CVS yesterday because they are supposed to give my insurance a break on OTC meds and vitamins. None rang up as lower price, so she cancelled the whole thing and just rang it normal. That way I had several bogo items and got some free.

    Then I went in Walgreens to fill my 3 Rx's. When I got home one had NO refills listed and it was supposed to have 5 refills. I called and they looked it up and I was right so they changed it in their computer. From now on I will look at them when I get them while I am still there.

    A nurse is coming between 3 and 5 to evaluate me for PT beginning Monday. I went to lunch with Andy and to the grocery store. It is cold here in the low 60's midday and 30 to 40 at night. I am layered up and have the heat on. Jeanie :)

    There is an independent pharmacy here that delivers for free. Sometimes they cannot match those deals. Their prices are compatible with the big box for the most part, but their service is fast, helpful, community based family runs it.

    :) When I saw the doctor I asked for twice a week PT at home for 6 weeks. That would be 12 sessions. The nurse today said they are sending a nurse weekly and 5 sessions of PT.

    I do not need a nurse just PT and more of it. I hope when the PT person comes I can get that changed. My leg and arm weakness is from laying in a bed for 5 months in rehab. Why is getting PT so hard? I am frustrated. Jeanie :)

    I've lived in 4 cities since MS, and each time I've tried very hard to latch onto a pharmacy that delivered. I usually found one though I often had to comb through the phone book and call each one to ask. I found that some that didn't list delivery as one of their services actually did deliver if I called and asked--or delivered within a certain radius of their location.

    Has anyone tried the PillPack I've been hearing about?
