Where do I send my thank you card?

I had the most lovely surprise at the pharmacy today.

I usually leave my monthly trip to the pharmacy about $300 dollars poorer than I went in, so the pharmacy (even my favorite Dicks's pharm!) isn't a place that makes me smile.

We have two ADHD kids and medicine makes their lives infinitely easier.  The problem is that ADHD medicine is a pain and it is expensive. That should be Expensive--$300 per month for the last four years to be exact.  That's almost 15,000 dollars in the last four years alone!

Today when I went to the pharmacy I was shocked when I went to swipe my card and saw a balance of $10!

Our medicine is finally generic.


I think I skipped out of the pharmacy today.

My medical bills just decreased by three hundred dollars a month!

Of course this little tender mercy occurred just in time for Landon to have surgery to fix a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee tomorrow.
So the drug savings will just go to the hospital.  

But I'm not complaining...

I'm so happy about that for you. I remember when a drug changed from $35 to $7 and I was happy. Yours is much more exciting!

That's pretty dang exciting! We all need more excitement like that in our lives!
