So. I just realized when I went to do my shot tonight :
1. Today it got crazy warm in Denver, high of 82.
2. We do not have air conditioning.
3. I keep my meds in a cardboard box on the floor of our bedroom next to our bed.
4. Those meds all need to be kept under 77 degrees. At least that's what the boxes say.
5. I have NO way of knowing how warm it got in our bedroom today (it's on the second floor).
Did I ruin it? Are all our meds ruined? The Gonal F is in the fridge, so that's safe....but what about everything else? Shit. Shit. Shit.
I am going to try calling the pharmacy. And then maybe the nurse on call.
Yes, I am that freaked out.
Anyone have any experience or advice about this?
I spoke with the pharmacy AND the nurse on call. They were both really kind and didn't seem annoyed that I was calling them freaking out. Both thought it was probably not a big deal. The main drugs to worry about would be the Lupron and the Gonal-F. The Gonal-F was downstairs in the fridge - I just took one box out of the fridge this afternoon and put it on the counter (ironically to warm up). So, it was probably fine. They asked if the Lupron felt warm to the touch at all and it didn't so they thought it was probably fine. The pharmacy rep reminded me that these drugs are shipped all over the place, are left in warehouses overnight, etc. and she said she assumed that they probably weren't as fragile as we imagined. Probably. I guess I will have to live with probably for now.
Mr. Spicy thinks I am a total spazz right now. I am. I just am so scared that I could have ruined everything for us.
I suppose that getting scared won't help matters any....so I will just have to try to have faith that everything is going to be ok.
Everything is going to be ok. (If I repeat this enough, will I finally believe it?)
