Good advice. That was quite a story along the lines of Murphy's law for sure.
I have to really plan for my Fentanyl patch refills carefully too. Last week, they put it in the mail on Monday, as usual, most times I get it the next day. By Thursday, no prescription in the mail, was already on my last patch. Ended up having to drive one hour to a hospital where my oncologist left me another prescription, then an hour back to the drug store, By then, i was one full day behind on my patch switch, as I have to switch every 48 hours. This Monday, the dr's nurse called, and the prescription she mailed came back in the mail, instead of sending it to Stone Avenue where I live, she wrote Stone Way. It was a close call, was afraid of having to go all weekend with no med.
We all have those moments.
