Yet another delay for Rilley's first vaccine treatment
Ok, so it's a paperwork snag...normally, not a big deal. Just get it straightened out and all is well, right? Well in this case, any delay can become disasterous. The vaccine is packed in enough dry ice to keep it viable for 3 days. However, it's been in transit since yesterday morning. FedEx wanted some extra time to allow for the inclement weather in Minneapolis and the American Thanksgiving. So the transportation time has used up two of the three days and as of this evening we weren't able to get it released from Customs. This means that if we are unsuccessful in having customs release the vaccine tomorrow it will most likely spoil and another one won't be ready for two weeks. This can't possibly be good for the success of his treatment.
Hopefully tomorrow will bring better news. So we are keeping our fingers crossed again!
