Hope everyone is doing well! I know some are awol, sitting on a beach somewhere without a care because all their cares are swimmin' in beer, margaritas and salt water (wish I was there, too), BUT...
Do ya'll keep copies of your medical records (scans, x-rays, pathology reports, blood tests, records of treatments/dosages, films, etc.) that are generated by doctors, hospitals, etc.? I'm tempted to start accumulating my wife's records before they get huge and spread all over God's creation and the hospital basement. Don't you need those for second/third opinions, or if you decide to switch doctors? And, is there a formal procedure for asking for the records, or can you just show up at the records desk?
Or am I just leanin' toward that anal/retentive trait?
