Lemon finished his most recent course of oral antibiotics on Friday and...so far, so good. Still at baseline. Now, we just have to wait and see if he can sustain it. In the mean time, we continue to pursue our plans to get a second opinion at a hospital in Milwaukee, and to get Lemon access to an inhaled antibiotic to try the next time he's sick. You may feel like you have been reading about these back-up plans for several consecutive weeks without any real substantive updates. You, dear reader, are highly observant.
afternoon, the pharmacy benefit people have neither their form nor a new prescription issued by the pulmonologist. On the plus side, it does sound like they will cover the medication if we could just manage to get our clinic to deliver on either option 1 or option 2.
We have a clinic visit coming up on Wednesday, and I'm sad to say that we will have to use at least some of the time to get these logistical issues taken care of. We were supposed to use the visit for something productive, like getting trained on how to use the new inhaled antibiotic, but that isn't going to be possible. I suppose I should just be grateful that things are stable enough right now that we can take the time to talk about paperwork while we're at the clinic.
