You honestly can’t make this shit up. I’m sorry for cursing in line one of my blog but I am so aggravated right now I don’t even know where to start. At 8:45 my phone rings and it’s CVS pharmacy asking me when my infusion is.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????￼￼
I’m like you have got to be joking. I called three weeks ago to start this process. They were so helpful, so nice. I was on the phone for an hour. They even submitted something to my insurance because that’s how they were able to schedule the date to send the drugs. ￼￼ Medication was coming Tuesday, September 8th. My nurse that administers the infusion was available Wednesday, September 9th. Perfect, this worked out well.
Then I get a call on Monday telling me that they forgot about Labor Day and they need to change my Tuesday delivery to Wednesday. There won’t be a problem I was informed with so many reassurances. I explained I have my nurse coming first thing in the morning I must have the drugs here. There won’t be any issue. I even called again first thing Tuesday morning and I was once again reassured it was all processing. I will have my medicine first thing Wednesday morning. ￼￼ I was even slightly concerned because I got a call from my nurse late last night that she had to make another stop first thing Wednesday morning. This could make her run fairly late to start my infusion. I wasn’t very happy but what was I gonna say.
Who knew? I should’ve known, because nothing ever goes smoothly when I have my infusion. The woman at CVS told me that my infusion was scheduled for the 11th. I have no idea where that date even came from. Never was that a date that was even picked. So now they’re trying to expedite this to have the medicine here by one. It’s still a six hour infusion. I have no guarantee when or if it will even be here today.
My mother told me to cancel if it’s not here at a reasonable time. I tried to explain that it takes a while to mentally prepare for this day. Once I have it in my head that I’m doing it I need to get it done.￼￼￼￼ putting it off now won’t really be an option very high on my list. So if I end up starting at 4 o’clock so be it. That’s exactly what my mom really want because it’s exhausting for me but I need to get it done today. My nurse knows what happened and will come and do the infusion whenever the medicine gets here. She doesn’t mind being here late. I just mentally can’t resign myself to putting things off for another day. I’m just so aggravated that they never can get it right. Truly unbelievable!!!!￼￼
