Thank G-d we found something...and why not to mess with Sara after 48 hours of illness...

We went back to the pediatrician at 2:15 today.

Guess what?

Ear Infection! Didn't have it yesterday, but did today. It must have been brewing.

She also felt that he seems to be a bit constipated-the doctor who checked him yesterday isn't his normal doctor and he has this big ole belly and makes it hard to feel around.

So he's on Cefzil and Miralax. Hopefully he'll be good as new tomorrow!!!!

Then we went to CVS to pick up the prescription.

Well accidentally my ped's office called in the prescription under Dovi, not Joseph (his legal name-but that's a story for another day!). So at this CVS, their policy with a new customer is that they put the script aside until the person comes in to, ya know, pick it up, and then they get the insurance information, and only then do they deign to fill it.

Well since it was for Dovi, not Joseph, "wasn't in the system", so they didn't fill it when we got there, 45 minutes after it was called in. It was going to be a 15-30 minute wait.

I was ticked off and told her that I thought this was a stupid policy. Yes, I used the word stupid to her. Then I started to walk away from the counter.

As I did, I turned around and looked at her. Dovi was doing his juicy sounding coughing thing.

"You know, he's probably contagious"

Waddaya know, it was filled in 5 minutes.

Don't mess with me, I tell ya.

CVS might be cheap, and generous with those ECBs....but I should warn you, not only do they not fill Rxs for supposedly "new" patients until they show up, but they also do not fill ELECTRONICALLY SUBMITTED scrips till the patient shows up......because the doctor E-MAILing a medication order is apparently NOT ENOUGH of a reason to fill it. I like the "contagion" c, I simply used the "I am very sick and about to have a meltdown right in front of your counter" approach. It worked, bit I advise it be save for extreme emergency only.....Hope the little man is doing better soon....

If you havne't gone yet this week, there are a few options:
If you drink cans of coke, buy 6 12 packs and get back 10 extra bucks.
Or buy 5 tubes of Colgate toothpaste for 2.99 each and get back 2.99 in ECBs
Or buy 2 bars of Neutrogena soap for 6 and get back 10 in ECBs

So do coke + colgate or coke + neutrogena or colgate + neutrogena + something else you need.
Or do it all!

2.99 in ecbs for each tube of toothpaste-not 2.99 total
