Well, I guess that it is budget cuts that created the weak summer schedule that CPCC is offering. SIGH. I can only take 2 classes!! and they are online..which should not cost as much as a traditional setting...that is all that I can take this summer because I will be out of the country for 2 weeks. oh, well, graduation will now be pushed back by a semester, not great news!!

The training collar collects everything but has to be on when he goes out otherwise he is uncontrollable, he is getting better though, slowly! It's just the backyard running loose that's the issue with jumping and nipping otherwise the housetraining is going really well. He's only 1 so a little ways to go.

OMG...look at that face!! Wait...I do believe I see a halo over his head...Mommy I Love You, Lick, Lick, Lick!! LOL!! He's adoreable!

They do a 90 day refill for only $10. That is sooooo much better than our pharmacy can offer. So at least we can get two of the scripts cheaper than we are paying now. That only leaves six to figure out how to get the cheapest. Different drug stores charge different prices w/ our plan. It is not across the board - like $5 for all generics and $25 for all other drugs on the preferred list. Crazy stuff, trying to sort thru/ this. I don't know how elderly folks do it w/o someone acting as their advocate.
Rx's are ridiculous! I don't know how people do it without an Rx plan! DH spends about $200 a month on his medications alone, he's on 7. Thank God I only have 1 Rx & it costs $5. I generally ask the dermatologist for samples of 1 medication because, even with my Rx plan, it's costs $90

Hubby is on 8 drugs - hoping they will drop one along the way. He does not have asthma but the bronchial spasms are somewhat controlled by asthma meds, so he is on that stuff for now. We have been told that once the fluid is off his lungs and heart, then the bronchial spasms should cease and he won't need the inhalers, steroids, etc. I think he will have to be on diuretics the rest of his life - at least - that is what I thought I heard one cardiologist say. Same for ACE inhibitors, etc. So I am thinking the pharma costs will be about what your H's are - $200. I have gotten the figure down close to that by using all the methods everyone has posted. Two drugs we can get from WalMart, so that will help. One drug I am going to have to see if the doc can substitute w/ another. To me, bronchial dilators are about all the same - so albuterol inhalers should be about the same. The one he was prescribed is expensive, but WM has a different one for a lot less $$$. So all these things we will figure out in time, I suppose. Also, depending on what his docs say he has to continue taking . . .

Like everyone has said - if we didn't have some kind of insurance/pharma plan - I shudder to think what would have happened to us. Haven't seen the hospital bill yet but I am expecting it to be the cost of a new home. I have no clue how we will come up w/ the balance, but you know - all I can think about is that we would have been totally screwed had we had NO insurance. So so so scary.

Ani-our previous black lab had diabetes so I had to buy 2 viles of insulin a month and then a box of syringes about every other month, Costco was by far the best price. We did this for at least 4 years, shots twice a day. Since he was a "dog" I was paying full price.

Trust me he'll beat on you back! I think I constantly have had a bruise somewhere since we've had him and don't forget a knock out concussion!

I do drum on his tummy and sing but have changed the words from bab-a to "Dog-a-loo"! The things we do to our pets.

Ani, I did a search on the website of the station I watched in Philly & found a couple of old reports. Hope they help.

He is being a perfect angel right now, oh wait, yeah he's asleep. It's when he wakes up that the halo starts to get a little tarnished.
