My tween age daughter hasn't been to the doctor in 2 years because I couldn't afford the insurance anymore. After untangling red tape trying to get state insurance for months, the fact that I got pregnant is the only thing that moved things along. Now that I finally have some insurance for her, I took her to the doctor. She's gained 33 pounds in these last 2 years putting her in the obese catorgory. She flunked her vision exam. The nurse wasn't able to draw blood because it wouldn't come through the needle meaning she doesn't drink enough water. She started her period a few months ago doctor says it's due to her weight. Then, later today I got a voicemail from the nurse saying she wanted to talk to me about what was found in her urine test. We phone tagged it until the office was closed so I'll find out what that's about tomorrow. I just feel like I've completely dropped the ball regarding her. I just feel awful.
