Resolved–at least I think

Thank you so much for your immediate prayers and concern on my behalf. After talking for almost two hours with four different people this morning, I think we have a temporary solution until my preauthorization is approved.

I should receive five days worth of Votrient sometime tomorrow in the hopes my preauthorization will also be approved in short order, and I will receive the remaining amount of my full prescription before we leave for MDA on Thursday evening.

My doctor has also placed an urgent request on the signed preauthorization, so the approval time with the clinical review board should be shortened from 7-10 days to hopefully three (or less). We had to switch pharmaceutical companies from Texas to Florida, but everything seems to be set-up in my account and with my insurance.

I apologize for exhibiting such frustration in the last post. I know Christ would’ve handled it differently, but as I told a friend today, the real loser in this situation is my daughter who was ignored by her Mama some of yesterday and some of today while I made phone calls about something that should’ve been avoided. (Heck, even while I take time to write this update post.) I grieve when this disease interrupts our time together – and it has A LOT the past year. In my “I still want perceived control of my life,” mentality, I can get so frustrated by the “reality” I have no control over any of this . . . with the exception of my attitude and my faith. Insurance, disease and human hiccups should not touch that, and I have allowed them to many times over the last several months. Ahhhhh – the learning curve of sanctification.

Thank you again, warriors for fighting on your knees on my behalf, and thank you for the great suggestions and insight the next time we are faced with a similar predicament. Now, on to continue praying this pill is actually working and worth all of the extra time expended to ensure it’s at my doorstep.


  1. HE has come through once again!!!!!!! Thank you Lord. Will continye praying that all goes wellat MDA for you and your family. Sharl and Doug

  2. As I was praying today, these verses came to mind for you and your family : "Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of your hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands! (Psalm 90:15-17)
