BumTum.....my deepest condolences regarding the tragic accident of your dear close friends. I could only imagine that the process of dealing with the loss, both physically and emotionally, would be very long and painful.
Support of friends and family as well as from others who have gone through such a loss would help.
I hope your GI can offer some assistance regarding your meds. If you paid by a certain credit card, it might also be covered regarding cost. Worth checking into.
