Soooo... I got my letter for the patient assistance program rebate program.  I am all set!  I called the doctors office to tell them, and they told me that not only was my last Remicade paid for, but also the one from 2006 that they thought wouldn't be paid for was too!
 
NOW! tommorrow, at 9:30 in the morning, I get to start Remicade again!
 
I'm SO excited!
 
Just thought I'd share...
