I am still alive!

Things have, understandably, been a little busy around here lately. There was a lot of drama about me getting my diploma in time for me to take it with me when I leave, but the nice people in the graduation office were able to find a solution for me. Granted, it cost me a lot more money than what I was planning on to expedite the process, but I had little choice, so I guess it is worth it. This also makes me the first person in the centennial graduating class of my school to have the real diploma in my hand (at least, I better be first for the price I paid to get it early)!

New "drama" in my life? Trying to convince the health insurance company to let me have a 6-months supply of my migraine medication before I leave. If they decline, then it could cost us up to $500 for 27 pills. I am an expensive person to keep healthy, apparently.

Speaking of being kept healthy, last week was fun times at the Health Department. After having gone 20 years without a shot (this does not mean no needles at all; I have, after all, had a couple of cavities in the last 20 years, my wisdom teeth removed, and a handful of CT Scans/MRI's), Dad took me to the travel clinic that they have and we learned all about traveling safely to another country and the different vaccines/immunizations that they suggest I have before I go. Well, I haven't had a tetanus shot since kindergarten (I know. How did I get through the public school system without these things? I have no idea, but I am grateful), I got to have a Tdap in one arm and what they call a "Twinrix" in the other. At the same time. It made my arms super sad, but I think if I had to choose between the two, I'd take the Tdap any day. Too bad I get to have my next booster in the Twinrix series today. Oh, and another one in 3 weeks. And then another one when I get back. (This is what they call an accelerated series; usually the series is given in a 6-month time span, but since I am not even here 6 weeks before I fly out... you see the problem.) This means that, Friday and Saturday last week, I had a nice little fever and a weird kind of headache that I've rarely experienced before. What is also fun about the fact that I go in for another shot today: I get to drive up to Provo practically right after! Weee!

So, that's life in a nutshell, lately. Lots of different appointments and phone calls (dentist in three weeks, hair in two, plus I need to get my doctor to write a letter so that the government doesn't think I'm trying to sell these medications that I'll be taking with me- I'll be using them myself, thanks). It is weird and kind of scary to me that I can see my departure date on the calender now.
