I woke up thinking about a line from an old television show that went like this “and that was the week that was.” I think it may have come from Rowan and Martin’s “Laugh In”, but I’m not sure. Does anybody else remember that line? Anyway, here’s a recap of “the week that was” in my neck of the woods…
My week started off crazy, and I knew I was in for a bit of a rough ride, when I received a call from my doctor’s office. You know, they never call with “good news”, do they? It seems my Thyroid has been on the blink again, so I got a call telling me to increase my dosage of Synthroid. I wasn’t surprised, because I’d felt like crap during the months of November and December. The bad part about increasing Synthroid, for me anyway, is the hormonal imbalance that it creates in my body!
My week didn’t get any better when I got a second call from the compounding pharmacy, on Monday afternoon, explaining that my gynecologist had changed my HRT prescription, too! Heaven help me! (Neither doctor knew the other was changing the other’s medications.) Anyway, I’ve decided to tackle increasing one medication at the time, so I’m not touching the new HRT prescription until next month!
Poor Ed, say a prayer for him as I struggle to get adjusted to all of these new hormones during the next few weeks… Oh! There is one more thing, the new HRT prescription cost will now be $211.00 for a three-month supply–and our insurance doesn’t cover the cost because it’s from a compounding pharmacy! This cost, added to the $66.00 a month co-pay for my Prevacid, makes me an expensive woman to keep around!
I spent most of the rest of the week getting decorated for Valentine’s Day. Holidays are always a big deal at my house–almost like a miniature version of Christmas. I packed away the snowman decorations, and got out the heart decorations! It looks like a Hallmark Store around here! I added several new decorations to the “year round” tree this year. I made many of them myself, and I purchased some from Hobby Lobby. Have I mentioned how much I love Hobby Lobby?
Yesterday I spent most of the day keeping our oldest grandson, Cade. He’s such fun to have around these days! He says the cutest things (he’s 3), and he always makes me laugh. We spent a large part of the afternoon outside, with granddaughter, Madison, her mom, and baby Alex. The weather was beautiful, and we soaked up the sunshine. It was in the 70’s here!
Speaking of baby Alex, he will turn one next week! He’s having a birthday party on Saturday. Alex has settled in nicely at our daughter’s house, and seems to be doing great. Sometimes eating is still a problem, but he’s crawling everywhere! He’s also learned to sit down from a standing position. Brandy’s got him sitting in a high chair for his meals, even though you can hardly see him from behind the tray! He’s such a little fellow–about the size of a 2-3 month old.
Well, that pretty much sums up “the week that was” for me. Have a great weekend, everyone!
