Just a quick thought for today! I was working on our household notebook and ran across the family medical history. I had written it all down a couple of months ago because we had to take our youngest to Duke Children’s Hospital and they wanted a complete medical history. After a lot of help with my aunt, we were able to go back as far as my great-grandmother and great-grandfather. I didn’t get time to type it up, but when I handed it to the doctor, they were very grateful and made a copy for my daughter’s file. Well, today I typed it up all nice and neat and the next time I go to the doctor, I will take a copy for their file on me.
These are unbelievably handy! Type up your’s and keep a printed copy in your household notebook or a file that’s easy to get to. It’s easier in an emergency to rip this out of a notebook or file than try to remember everything you need to in an emergency situation (which I’ve had to do more than I can count).
