    Ssusan, Sunshine’s post jogged my memory.

    For blood draw, my mom has “home draw” ordered by her MD and fulfilled by Quest or by the nurse as she still has a nurse every couple of weeks. I know the Quest draw was by a Quest employee and payed for by Mom’s Medicare Advantage. She pays a small, $20 or less, co-pay.

    For transportation, we used to call the local ambulance (Rescue 8) and book non-emergency transportation for my dad. He had had a stroke and used a walker.

    Hope this helps. Good luck, I know you want your Ocrevus on time.

    You guys have so much common sense. And I have Osteoporosis apparently. The day I broke my hip I also broke a rib (bad day)
    and they told me I had broken a rib the previous month.
    I learned I had a UTi at the time.
    I have a tendency to get all macho about things. After falling in the house and breaking a rib(I later learned) I took Advil and went grocery shopping. Itís when I got home and was opening the hatch of my car and leaned back a little and kept going. Bad day.
    Be the person your dog thinks you are

    Hello Susan,
    Annís advice is good. I have always wondered what I would do on snowy days. I think if someone drops you off by the door and runs in to get a wheelchair it would make the most sense for the infusions. Hard to push a rollater with any bumps in the snow so I do not use mine much in the winter. No good options.

    Macho = bad
    Surviving = good

    Someone's been exploring the idea of giving Tysabri infusions at home. They don't have that in place yet but if they set it up for Tysabri, seems to me it could be set up for Ocrevus as well--?
