Had to take Jacob to urgent care tonight. He had a fever of 102.5 and looked miserable. They diagnosed him with another ear infection in one month. :-(





Well since it was late the target pharmacy was already closed so i had to go to walgreens. This has only been his second prescription ever but target didn't have issues getting the insurance authorization. But walgreens did. Talked To 3 different representatives and none could find him listed on our prescription coverage. To me that was really weird. But i really didn't want to wait until tomorrow to go to target cuz he was so miserable. The customer line for our insurance was closed to. My only other option was to pay the $50 out of pocket for the antibiotics and decongestant was $25. And since the Dr called it in together i had to get both at the same time. I don't even know if it could be transferred to target tomorrow anyway.





Well the pharmacist was very nice and trusted me when i said target has his correct info to bill our insurance so she let me take it tonight so Jacob could start getting better tonight. She will call target tomorrow to get the info they never. Its nice to know that people still care more about us than the profits of a company.



Edit- In the ER. His temp shot up to 104.9 after having motrin. No ear infection. Trying to get him to pee in a bag to test for bladder/kidney infections. His lungs and all sound good. Update when we get discharged.

I hope he gets better soon!  I'm glad the pharmacy at walgreens was nice to you.  I have to use CVS as part of my plan and unfortunately they have been awful to me.

Totally off the subject but have you looked into Chiropractic care for ear infections? I didn't know anything about it until my baby got an ear infection. Very interesting just google it!

 Aww. I hope he feels better. Walgreens is always great at dealing with customers in a caring way.
