Well, it didn't take as long as I thought to get it all approved. I even got the Enbrel co-pay support (which is WONDERFUL since my co-pay is $200!!!!) It's been an obnoxiously stressful week at work and getting all the insurance stuff done, sick (big) kid at home who won't let me near him, even though it's obvious he wants his "mommy", because he is afraid of me getting sick...he's a trooper :-) Now we're hunkering down for a hurricane/monster storm to strike. In a warped way I'm hoping for a few days of no power just to get a break from work and some rest! Obviously, without all the damage and loss of life....

Thanks for all the support and advice! It's been reassuring to hear that this was "normal" to go through to get the meds approved.

Glad to hear that everything went better than expected with getting the Enbrel approved for you. I hope that it works well! I am in PA and everyone here is panicking about the hurricane.

Thanks Kim and Jen. We're just in waiting mode now in Richmond. I've got plenty of food/water/candles/batteries/charcoal....unless this house full of boys who are currently hanging out (6 at last count including my 2) plan on riding out the storm here! In that case, I've got enough food for about 6 hours LOL! I've just nudged them to go do something useful like get brownie and cupcake mix and chips :-)

Everyone be safe!
