    Since I live just over 2 hours from where I get my Spinraza injections I take a service called MediVan.  As some of you may recall last time the van broke down on the way to the appointment.  Luckily I was able to rearrange things to still get the injection that day.  Usually I schedule the ride as soon as I know when the appointment will be.  This time was no different except that a few weeks ago my appointments were pushed to Friday, one day later.  No big deal, I called MediVan and rescheduled.  Today I called to confirm pick-up times and they don’t have me on the calendar!  Of course they had Thursday cancelled but nothing scheduled for Friday and no openings.  It’s so frustrating.  Now I have to make my Mom, who doesn’t drive in the cities, drive in the cities so I can make these appointments.

    That’s unfortunate. My grandfather actually owns and operates a medical transportation van, and he drove me to Portland once for a doctors appointment. Pretty cool.
