Doggie issues

Last Saturday, the family dog, Eddie, welcomed our neighbors home from their vacation.

I only took 2, maybe 3, Oxy out of the 20 pills dispensed to me, and, even though I received two scripts for the Hydrocodone (one at the Urgent Care, the other from the foot Surgeon) I don’t have any plans to fill the second script. Otherwise, ibuprofen and caffeine are my drugs of choice.

Foot Status

My foot hurts, even after taking my prescribed pain medication. 

Surgery was successful, albeit much more extensive than anticipated. My left foot’s big toe was shattered. 

I also saw the out-of-pocket estimate. Oh boy. If I read my policy correctly, I’ve pretty much reached the out-of-pocket max for 2016 – and I still have 11 months to go.
