Hi everyone

I called my doctor's office today. I told the receptionist that the pharmacist needed the pre-approval number for my patches. One of the nurses called and asked if the patch is for my back pain, duh. I told her yes. She said she was going to call Medicaid and get the number. I called about an hour ago ans my patches were ready. I now have a patch on. No more suffering as soon as it gets back into my system!!! I'm so glad that the nurse took immediate action.

Thank you all for your support the last few days. I have been feeling so crummy, but that's about to end. :-)

You all take care and I hope that you're all having a low pain evening.

love and lots of soft hugs
