So I went to get labs and since I'd had so much trouble getting them to do all the right standing orders, I'd made a file with the list of all my standing orders and printed off a copy to take. I hope that worked. After that, I went back to the pharmacy waiting room and waited about an hour. Some of the supervisors were helping people as they came in and I talked to them -- all the pharmacies are far behind and the one in Largo had 60 people in line! I'd taken an old WashPost so I had something to do. Finally my name was up on the screen and then I had to stand in line another 20 minutes. This is one of the reasons I usually get meds mail order. Even when things work right, I have to stand up too long.
The supervisors told me we're going to have a big new "green" building for the clinic in a year, about two blocks away. I'm going to call Customer Service and see if I can get them to not put brick at the entryway.
When I left Kaiser, I stopped at the PetSmart in the same shopping center to get wet food for the kitties. When I came out, the sky was gray and it was even colder. We're to have "wintry mix" tonight and tomorrow but it may clear for Saturday.
But when I got home, things brightened up -- many packages had come: My BFAC kit for this year (can't say anything, I know other BFACers read here and they don't get to know until they get their kit), books, Spirit's teddy bear, and her alligator. I took the alligator out of the box, threw it at her, and she sniffed it a few seconds and then started play-disembowelling it. That's my girl!
I'll sleep with the teddy tonight so it doesn't smell strange.
