CCS approved Froggy's inhaled antibiotic, and they're covering it 100%.
Froggy's Grandma picked it up from the pharmacy downtown and brought it all the way to us tonight. So tomorrow, our anti-pseudomonas regime begins!
Thank you everyone for your kind words and support. And thank you Beverly for suggesting the CF study. I guess the first two months are covered by CCS, but after that, we may need to join a study to get the next six months supply.
I can't tell you how thrilled I am that it took only a few days, rather than weeks. Nothing is ever easy, so this feels a bit surreal. I think we should send flowers to our caseworker, or perhaps a case of wine, so that in the future she'll rubber stamp that APPROVAL with every new medication.
FD watched Froggy tonight, so I could catch up with my good friend "Gorgeous Hair". We went out for pasta, wine and bread (does it get any better than that?) and discussed the sad state of politics, which was far more uplifting than the sad state of our health care system. And somehow, with carbs and wine, I feel like we'll get through this. We'll eradicate pseudomonas and eventually CF. Someday!
