Important Call...

Friday, June 07, 2013

Well, I woke up to a panicked call this morning..... I use the county clinic, since I lack health care insurance... Anyways, the nurse is freaked out cause my CBC (Complete Blood Count) level is at 7.3 not at 12.0 like normal people. I'm very calm during the call, and tell the nurse, it's gone as low as 3.1 before. Call me back when I hit 5.0 or something. She insist that I come in and see the doctor. She's worried, I may have a heart attack with my CBC levels being a little low...

I give in. I'm feeling fine this week. I had only 2 migraines since April... Migraines and craving ice are my cues that my blood levels are too low and really need to come back up.

The doc checks me over, says I'm doing really good and my weight is down to 321. The doc decides to give me 1 med and sends me home. She even went as far as to wish me a wonderful weekend. Yet, the doc wants me to follow up in 2wks...

I'm just thinking... I got some homework to do before tomorrow... And I don't have the textbook... Oh, what fun I will have tonight! lol.

I'm gonna go get my free birthday sandwich from WhichWich. Have a good one!

    It was a good thing to get yourself checked anyway right ? I am glad you did the right thing and have peace of mind that all is good. I think it was a good thing that the clinic was concerned enough to call you right away and get you in. Sounds like you are having good success living healthy.

    I work in a hospital and I do not have insurance either so I get as many free health assessments as they offer.

    Ennjoy your lunch today, :) !!!
