Gah!!! Some days are just the pits. Stayed home today, but went in early to drop off lesson plans and get things set up for the sub. Got home and got a little bit done, then checked school e-mail. There was an e-mail from our newbie teacher who was out with the flu. She had told the computer proctor to go to my classroom and get my spare computer so her sub could use it. Then a second e-mail from her had her lesson plans attached and asked if I could print them out and give them to her sub. Two problems with that. . .1) I need my spare computer for my own sub and 2) I'm not there to print out her plans for her.
Then, I called my doc's office to see if she could write a script for some more potent antibiotics, since the first round hasn't done anything. She's out for the day and they are not willing to give my message to the doc that is in. Grrr.
Then, I call the specialty pharmacy to order my Sprycel and found out that my onc had forgotten to call in a new script. So I called my onc's office and left a message. Got a very apologetic call back from the nurse, saying she had taken care of it. Called the pharmacy again and got that taken care of, answered the typical questions about side effects, other meds, etc. Then 15 minutes later, the pharmacist from the specialty pharmacy called from New Jersey all concerned because there is a drug interaction between Sprycel and my antibiotic. She tells me that I can't start taking Sprycel until after I finish the antibiotics. I tell her that I have to take the Sprycel every day. She doesn't quite know what to say. So I figure I might as well pick her brain before I talk with my PCP about the antibiotics so I ask her about the other antibiotic my doc had discussed. . .same drug interaction. Poor lady didn't know what advice to give me. I felt badly for her after I hung up.
Then, I get a call from my doc's office. They had forwarded my message to her at home and she called back saying she was concerned enough that she wanted to see me tomorrow. That's a problem because I have to be back at work tomorrow. No way I will leave the classroom two days in a row (actually three, since I stayed home Friday). . .things would be a disaster. Luckily I was able to get an end-of-day appt. ..will find someone to cover the last 15 minutes of my class tomorrow.
Sheesh! Oh crap. . .I just realized that my meds will be arriving at school tomorrow. . .they better get there before I leave for the day. Guess I'd better have a back-up plan. $27,000 worth of meds sitting around over Thanksgiving break will make me nervous.
There was some good news for the day. . .at least I got all of my science notebooks graded. My goal is to not assign anything tomorrow that I will have to bring home over the long weekend. My other goal is to not drop dead from a heart attack because of the drug interaction. Hopefully I can manage both!
