This is exciting news
. About a week ago, I asked my pharmasist, WallGreen's, about a
accessible device. He researched it, called me back with a solution.
It has been ordered and will let you know when I receive it.
I did not feel the need for a device until, my doctor added a few more
meds. The best of us can easily become confused...
  So, I encourage everyone to ask your pharmacist what is
available...let's find out are the various devices accessible.

Thanks Sherry for all you do!
