Update on Drug Shortage

I did a little detective work come yesterday morning. Detective- we can now add that to my list of duties as Wyatt's Mom! I began calling local hospitals and talking with their pharmacists, explaining our situation, inquiring about their current IV Valium supply and their ability to order more from their suppliers. What can I say? I'm a Mom on a mission...a stubborn, desperate Mommy. Everything within me is telling me to keep pushing on regarding this situation, and so that's what I'll do. Together with hospice, we were able to secure an additional 2 week supply of IV Valium, coupled with what we have now gives us 3 weeks worth of scheduled doses. It bought us time to breath...and work to find more.

Or, should we have to think of alternate plans. I may be desperate and stubborn, but I'm not completely unrealistic. However, for now, should the need arise I'll continue calling pharmacies every week looking for a supply, happily, if it gets my sweet boy what he needs. Love this kid! 

Friends and family- thank you for the kind words and prayers. I do hope you know they're always appreciated. I've told Wyatt about his "fan club" from around the world. He knows he has a lot of friends praying and wishing him well!

  3. That is great that the other Pharmacy could help. Good people. Great God.

  4. Oh, how you're - all - on my mind. As you are fighting the good fight, keeping on, trusting, watching, waiting, never quitting...

    And I'm sure (SURE) that the pressure is quite often far beyond what words will encompass.

    You are not forgotten. Praying here,
