Nana asked me to “test out” her DVD player by playing two DVDs. One of which was “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge” starring Hallie Berry.
Dorothy Dandridge was an Oscar-nominated actress for her role as “Carmen Jones” as in the movie by the same name.
As we watched the movie, I picked up more a-has from it when I did the first time that I saw it.
After putting my health on the back burner for a while, (who am I kidding, a long while) I decided to get my annual checkups.
I took one of the regular exams over a month ago, then they wanted me to come back to have another exam.
The place where I took the exams sent the results to me, but not to my primary care facility.
Two weeks after the exams, I thought that the primary care facility would of had the results, but they did not.
I thought a couple of weeks was enough time for the primary to review the results, so I scheduled the appointment.
Its a good thing I had the results on me.
I started to get my records in order earlier in the year during a lull b/w Nana’s appointments.
The lesson here. Keep your own health records just as good if not better than your caree’s.
