smile, Andrew

Randomness

Andrew wound up having another nasty asthma attack late yesterday afternoon. The doctor at Conway didn't renew Andrew's prescriptions a while back, since he wasn't really sure about his entire medical history, because he wanted to see how Andrew did without them. He'd been without the Albuterol inhaler for about a month, as of the time of the attack yesterday.
So, I took Andrew to the emergency room at Conway, and they took him right back, gave him a breathing treatment and a shot, made sure he was doing okay, gave him a prescription to be filled for more Albuterol, an appointment for a follow-up at the clinic for next Monday, then sent him home. We stopped by Wally World on the way home (since it was only a little after 7:00pm), with the intention of getting his prescription filled. The sign in the front of the Supercenter says the pharmacy is open from 8:00am-9:00pm Monday through Friday. No other sign was up concerning any possible closing early because of Labor Day. We walk to the pharmacy, the dang thing was closed! I said "Screw this... let's go to Walgreens down the road!"
Needless to say, Walgreens was open. They even had a BIG sign in the front door that read "Open 24 hrs. Labor Day". I've never gotten any prescriptions filled for him there, but luckily I had his state Medicaid card with me, the pharmacist wrote down the number on the back of the prescription, and less than 15 minutes later, the prescription was ready. Had no problems with the Medicaid card whatsoever. I think, since I can no longer count on Wally World's pharmacy in a bind, from now on I'll start getting Andrew and mine's (mine's??) prescriptions filled at Walgreens.

Earlier this morning, I went to apply for a job at Louisiana Corrigation, a new factory starting up that Marshall, one of my co-workers from Wally World informed me about, then went back over to Conway to set Andrew up with an appointment with their eye clinic. Luckily, I was able to get the appointment about an hour before his scheduled appointment at the Pediatric clinic Monday morning to get his asthma seen about, seeing as the two clinics are right across the hall from each other. That way, he won't have to miss two days of school.

In other news, it's a shame about Steve Irwin's accident, but I was fairly amused by this Flash-based game someone apparently rushed out...

Random Review

Decided to give Katie Couric a chance on the "CBS Evening News" this afternoon. After watching five minutes, I said "Meh...", and switched back over to what I usually watch in that time slot, the "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams"...
