The weather is changing and spring fever is running rampant. Underneath the snow rivers run and puddles grow. The driveway is a muddy mess and what was once a snow white over of fluff is now an icy, dirty, field of debris. In spite of the muddy disarray, the sun and warmer temperatures beckon us outside. Too bad I don't know what to do once I get out.
I went for a drug screening today, something I never imagined having to do. I've made numerous calls in an attempt to locate old medical records, specifically vaccinations, but apparently everything has been destroyed. I am a medical nobody outside of the records at my OB/GYN and they will disappear once my baby turns 21. I did learn I was last at the GYN in 2004. It was the same year I also had my last physical with a general practitioner, a mammogram or two, and was treated for a UTI. After that I lost my insurance coverage, wasn't sick, and soon after my then physician moved her practice to another location. All of my childhood records are gone and all of my adult records are gone too.
I am starting over. I have a clean slate, in a manner of speaking. Tomorrow I have a consultation with the nurse practitioner where My Darling has his doctor. (I should be writing out my life history...) I need to prove I am immune to the measles if I hope to ever get a job in the nursing home, and I need a doctor to order the titer to prove my immunity. Needless to say, it's been a busy week.
