Almost two weeks ago I purchased the microphone I had wanted for some time and had previously mentioned. I was ready to get back into the swing of things. Caroline and David were finally healthy. Our taxes were done. We had completed a solid week of homeschooling after so many stops and starts since Thanksgiving. I was looking forward to getting back on track in all aspects of life.
The day after I bought the microphone, I came down sick and lost my voice.
I’m getting better every day, but for well over a week I was not up to doing a whole lot. The voice and coughing thing was the worst. I understand it’s going around so I’m one of the many to get this particular version of the cold this year.
On top of that, my main EoE medicine is now not available anywhere. The pharmaceutical company stopped making the brand name and switched to a generic out of the blue at the end of 2023. No warning to pharmacies, doctors, patients, etc. They just did it. My refill request has been sitting at Meijer for a month and I still don’t have it. My other doctor called in a prescription for me at another pharmacy chain last week to hopefully increase my chances of getting it. If you think of me, please pray I can get this medicine before I run out. I know there are all kinds of medicine shortages and I submitted my refill well before I would need it. I expected it might take a few weeks. However, I was not anticipating needing to wait months. So I have joined the happy band of people rationing their medication beyond their needed dosing because we currently live in a collapsing country where these things now happen with regularity.
Stolen elections have massive consequences, don’t they?
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. I did manage to post several Homeschooling with Cozy Books and Unit Study posts that were already partially written as well as a few others. I also did some other things behind the scenes so all was not lost.
I hope you are healthy and able to find the things your family needs during these challenging times.
