No Medication / Late call / Friends

While I appreciate the almost daily rain showers we have received in the past two weeks, I am ready for a reprieve. The weeds are sky high. the mosquitoes unrelenting and the ants are completely out of control.

It was a good thing we decided to follow the Uvalde doctor to San Antonio, Texas. In the short time that the new doctor has been in charge, he has decided he is not going to put up with the Del Rio hospital and clinics not sending the lab results on time.  He is requiring his Del Rio patients to drive the Friday before to Uvalde for their blood draw.  Making two trips there is the equivalent of driving to San Antonio.

Tuesday we went to see her primary physician here in town. We are still waiting on coding from his office so she can get her medication.  Today I got tired of waiting and asked how much it would cost if I paid for it...$109.50 for the generic...guess we will wait.

Last night the phone rang at 10:15 p.m. When I lived in Houston, I got calls at all hours from my friends. However, it really bothers me now because for one, it is not good telephone etiquette to call after 10:00 p.m. secondly this is not my house and thirdly it was an acquaintance not a friend. I can see if it was an emergency but this was not the case.

On a positive note, I also heard from my best friend. She along with some other friends will be coming to Lake Amistad in the not to distance future.  The only place I get to see them is in Terlingua so I am really excited about that.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. You can't very well just go ahead and pay the full amount for a prescription these days. It's outrageous that they can charge over $100 for a generic!

    Fortunately our rain hasn't brought hordes of mosquitos, maybe because it is too cool for them. I hate those things!

    1. The price of medications has become obscene.

  2. On top of the price of medicines now days Congress gives them a tax break. Did you ever hear of Congress giving somebody a break on their taxes. Nope! pay or they will be out to take everything. damn shame what has happened to our country. On a happy note, damn cute puppy!

  3. Texas Country Reporter replayed the heartwarming story of Chito Martierena of Del Rio again this morning. Although he is only 5' tall and his body is all bent and twisted plus the fact he cannot speak he is still a giant of a man. I only wish I could help him out some way but they said he refuses handouts.

    Hate those skeeters - they're beginning to really swarm here too.

    1. I guess I missed it one more time. He can usually be found down the main drag of the city...Veterans Blvd...but since it is a busy street have not been able to snap a picture.

      I like your new avatar. Thought of you last night after OKC spanked the GSW.

    2. I am finding myself really pulling for OKC especially after the sewer dirty play of Draymond Green. Totally uncalled for.

      I guess I had previously commented about Chito but wasn't sure. Sorry about that. CRS taking over!

    3. I have always wanted to know more about Chito. It was thanks to one of your comments on an old post that I learned he was featured on Texas Country Reporter.

      Having been away from Del Rio from so many years I was not familiar with his story.

    4. Us Spurs fans tend to think alike.

      I too am pulling for OKC. No one can tell me that what D. Green did to Steven Adams was not on purpose. He is a dirty player and I hope he gets suspended just like they did to that Cavalier player that did the same to Toronto Raptors Biyombo.

    7. Andy thank you so much for the link. I watched it and it was a tear jerker. Hope some of my readers can watch it as well. Bless that guy that is his friend and that probably contacted the show to let the rest of the world know his story.

  4. I don't enjoy going to get my medication because it cost an arm and a leg. Sometimes I think that is cheaper to die.

    1. Dizzy, don't say that! Dying is not an option.
