Escaped commieny



   Escaped commieny posted on Pet Peeves  DH was discharged from the hospital yesterday, on the way home I dropped off the prescription for pain meds at Walgreens. His Doc was off so who ever wrote the 'script didn't put a quantity on the paper. Walgreens couldn't fill it so I called the hospital, the charge nurse tried calling it in to Walgreens but because it is Hydrocodone, ( apparently a narcotic ) they would not accept it over the phone or fax.
I had to make a trip to the hospital today to get some moron to write '60' for quantity, so that took one second there and 60 miles after DH spent 19 hours of agonizing pain. The hospital said they would be sending a survey in the mail, I CAN"T WAIT. Let me be clear the surgeon and staff were all wonderful, but I want the name of the jerk that would write out a prescription and not have the brains to put down the quantity. Then I got an automated call from Walgreens the script would be delayed because they couldn't reach the Liberty insurance, I was supposed to get a call back,never did, so I drove up armed with my FSA card and United Health card if the Helios issued by Liberty didn't work, ready to raise h311, but what do you know, it was ready for pick up and fully paid by Helios but Walgreens never called back saying it was go. We are supposed to have home delivery service as part of the package, for no out of pocket expenses, but I wasn't about to wait for Walgreens to get on the ball. I wish we had RiteAid stores down here, Walgreens stink.

   Balogreene  I went to the Dr. 10 days ago with a sore on my back (staph or strep infection ), and an ear infection. The Dr. said I also had a sinus infection. The Nurse Practitioner sat at her computer, and sent the prescription to the Giant Food, 4 shops down. I drove down there, did a little shopping, and went to the Pharmacy. The woman told me it would be an hour. I said an hour, she said there are 200 prescriptions ahead of you. I said, there aren't 200 people in the store. And there is certainly no one waiting in line. We have to take them in the order they come in she said.

I spoke to the store manager on my way out. She didn't know they operated like that, and they are a separate entity from the grocery. I explained this is not the first time it happened. But, my insurance requires me to use a specific mail-order firm for all but one-offs. I wouldn't be there if I wasn't sick. Several times I have had to go home, get out of bed later, and run back to Giant.

The manager was concerned people would change to WalMart, or the Shopper's Warehouse (I don't think they have a pharmacy ), another grocery store that did not force you to come back.

I think they all do this. And I think they are wrong. Yes, fill the prescriptions as they come in, but, if someone is standing in front of you, take 5 minutes out to count the pills, bottle them, and hand them to that person.

To make it worse, I got a bottle with the foil safety seal still on it, and a pharmacy label pasted over it, and a box of Bacitracin, with the label stuck on. All they had to do was print a label and slap it on something they grabbed off the shelf.

All of my Drs now use computers, before I leave their office, the prescription is sent. I wonder how many Drs use that system?

   BirdsNest  Thank you,EC. There are many of us here that are on the edge with loved ones and health issues. All the prayers that come this way are multiplied and sent to everyone else. It is important to stick together. Extremely important. That burden is less to carry when you know there is someone else "out there" that will assist you.

   Escaped commieny posted on Pet Peeves  On a lighter note, Christmas lights ! GRRR Put up the pre-lite artificial tree last night, out of four strands only one worked. Didn't have time to sit and plug/unplug each little squirt bulb. Took the wire cutters and removed the blasted things. It is going outside as a decoration by the fence and hit Lowe's early am for a new pre-lite tree, good grief, even with a Military discount is was a weeks groceries. Bah humbug, it better last 10 years.

   Straitpath  I guess light troubles are part of Christmas. My favorite lights are the big old fashioned bulbs on a snow layered tree. Merry Christmas.

   Escaped commieny  Me too, SP but only have a few left. It's hard to find a decent live tree in Florida, although we lead the nation in pine trees, they grow them for telephone poles not Christmas trees. The old blown glass bulbs are in tissue paper and am afraid to light them, but they have a special place under the 'fake' tree as part of the holiday.

   Escaped commieny posted on Sports  Buzz, are you coming to Tampa for the game? DH's boss is coming tomorrow, and will have a trunk full of his stuff from his rig, I am meeting her in Wildwood,Fl. She is from Wisconsin & won't miss a game so she is combining work and pleasure. Don't blame her, it should be around 80° this week end.

   Escaped commieny posted on Recipes  Three Connectors asked me about our Christmas Eve celebration, here goes:
The Polish Christmas Eve Meal is called the WIGILIA Feast (my version,
each eastern European county has their own traditional foods, but similar )
It usually has 12 or 13 dishes and begins after the first star is spotted.
It begins with the breaking of Oplatek, a transparent wafer similar to
a communion wafer. The Father breaks off a piece, dips it in honey and
it is passed around the table with everyone breaking off a piece and dipping
in honey.
This is a meatless meal.
Next is a warm soup, either beet Borscht, mushroom or almond.
The main dish is white fish, although one year, Mom used a lake
trout caught by my uncle at his lake.
The side dishes come from the field, orchard, and forest.
Sauerkraut (Kapusta ), potato, peas, beans and perogie (Varenyky ).
I take a short cut and use potato stuffed perogie and can
usually find sauerkraut stuffed perogies made by ladies at
the Russian church. Poppy seed is a must for peace and honey
for contentment. Another shortcut, I use Pillsburg cresent dough,
shape into little balls and after they are baked, roll them in honey
and poppy seed, my version of Bobalky. Wish I had some of Birdy's horseradish
to add grated beets (Cwikla ) I sauté cabbage with buttered noodles, but
technically, besides NO meat, there should be no dairy. With all the
perogies, prunes are also on the list! But you can include them in the
dried fruit compote.
Red Wine, although in the old country they use homemade vodka.
If you still have room, cookies, once a year I make Kolachy (Kulaczi ), the
delightful little, melt in your mouth, filled with sweet walnut paste, cookies.

   Balogreene  Sounds good. Actually, sounds wonderful. My Polish aunt always had ham and sauerkraut to go with the Turkey and potatoes, but that was Christmas day dinner.
My Scandinavian side often gave in to the English side. I do know the Scandies had a dinner with lutefisk, lefse (a Norwegian potato "bread" ), ham, and vegetables. After dinner they opened presents and went to church. Christmas morning was started with Cardamom coffee cake, and went on to Swedish Pancakes (a sweet crepe ). Cookies were pfefferneuse, pepparkakor (thin ginger cookies ), Spritz, Sandbaklse, and Rosettes.

   Escaped commieny  The German DH insists on pfefferneuse cookies and my Italian friend makes pizzels. Two of my uncles had Russian wives and the third brought a war bride home from England, so we had quite an international feast.
Unfortunately most are gone, just lost the last Uncle, he was 93, not a bad run considering he survived the Normandy battle. These menu's make for long livers !

   Escaped commieny posted on Faith  Just so you know, WARRIORS, the prayers are working. The Doc did an x-ray on the 5th and said he would probably need surgery to re-attach the ligament, but DH is out of the brace and getting around pretty good on crutches, he had an MRI today and we will know on the 16 th if he, indeed, needs surgery, so far so good. Still haven't heard where our rig is, but supposed to be driven to Atlanta, where they will pack up our stuff and FedX, but this is the busiest of times and a shortage of drivers makes us low priority, customers come first, and I understand. Thanks again. Prayers from Florida for all that are needed by the posters ( our family, by different mothers, LOL )

   Escaped commieny  Pre op scheduled for 12/22, surgery 12/24. Can't believe it is Christmas Eve! But Dr. Hollman is one of the best, so if he works that day, I guess the least I can do is chauffeur and nursemaid duty.
