Daughter's prescription issues have never gone away.  So the pharmacy the agency uses and that delivers prescriptions to the homes won't fill her prescription for test strips for anyone on Medicaid.  It is so frustrating.

Yesterday her blood sugar was 300 at lunch time.  She was given way too many carbs for breakfast.  I probably did too much yesterday and today, and I just don't have the energy to deal with any of this. 

Tomorrow I have a graveside service.  The family wanted a woman to do it, and the colleague they originally asked has a wedding at the same time.  I probably shouldn't have taken it, but it's hard to say no in a situation like this. 

I went over to the church today to write the graveside service and finalize Sunday's sermon.  I got them done, so my only obligation tomorrow is the service.  I think that will be enough.

Isn't it? We have had similar issues with Medicare and test strips. Insulin pens, lancets no problems but test strips? They do realize we can't use the insulin pens or lancets without test strips to go with them and it's not a 1 to 1 relationship. Don't they? Sigh...

Test strips and good control are cheaper than complications-- but that involves looking ahead.
