Medical Packet Stress

So after reading many many blogs on how stressful the med packet is, I finally understand. I received mine a week and a half ago, and I've been running around like a headless chicken trying to cram appointments into my schedule. So far I've completed the physical (including blood work, vaccines, and lady doctor visit), and 2 of my "special" required forms--aka asthma and orthopedic work. Now all I have are the dental and optometry appointments, but I've heard the dental exam can be a nightmare so I'm a little concerned. I really hope that my asthma and sore ankle (from 18 years of gymnastics) do not lead me to a deferral or worse, a rejection. It would be terrible to get this far through the process only to be stopped now! Anyway, happy thoughts!

My gymnastics team qualified for NCAA nationals for the 1st time in 22 years. BOOM! We are so excited, and I'm so proud of our team. I couldn't have asked for a better way to end my career. I'm really going to miss my team next year, but I know they'll be doing great things--each and every one of them :)) Too bad there won't be any Big Ten Network where I'm going, hah. well, I'll update again once I have finished my packet and sent it in.
