Pink eye is the pits

Both boys came down with pink-eye this week, resulting in temporary exile from daycare. Poor Johnnie's looked awful, but passed quickly enough. The entire process of getting prescription drops refilled was ridiculous. Our MD only saw John, but told us to treat Walter as well, so of course we flew through the drops. Then as we had no refills, had to call the doctors office to authorize the pharmacy for more. Of course my doctor was then out of town! After several calls back and forth leading to no resolution for the day, we made it through the night only to use the last drops the next morning, still without scripts called in. Finally, they get it together and my insurance denies the refill b/c it was "too close" from the time in which it was initially perscribed. I get their point, the prescription for only for John, but the doctor says when you treat one you treat both. Insurance companies are not so laid back, however. Fortunately my second insurance picked up the tab. Annoying though!
