more progress

So I got a voice mail today from Erica over at my RA office. She finally got the tb results and my rheumy approved the OK for the prescription for Enbrel FINALLY! but now... what did she say? She has to FAX the prescription over to my PC Doctor who has to approve it THEN send it off to insurance for approval *sigh* at least i'm getting closer and closer I guess. I'm going to call my PC Doctor office next week to check up on things. I never thought it'd be this much work just to get on this medication =/

I've been feeling like complete shit lately. Hours are picking up at work again now that the scheduling issue's are fixed. So i'll be working about 30 hours these next two weeks. The good news is they are longer shifts 7-8 hours from now on so I will get more days off instead of working crap 4-5 hour shifts. Let's see how this will make me feel =( But gotta make money to pay those bills. Ugh.

Tomorrow is my nieces 1 year birthday party so i'm looking forward to that & spending some time with my family, let's hope i can have enough energy to get through the day. I'm so tired, I'm going to sleep now, just got home from laser tag with friends which was fun.


  1. Hey Skye,

    Hope the Enbrel gets fully approved asap; it really is ridiculous how many hoops you have to jump through to get on it.

    Sorry you're feeling so crap, but I hope you feel better soon. Have a great time at your niece's birthday party today – I'm sure it'll be lots of fun. It's always interesting seeing how kids that age react to things like cake and presents (they don't seem to get that there's something INSIDE the box!!).

    :) L

  2. Hang in there. my approval took about 5 weeks.
