Be #UrgentCarePrepared for Anything This School Year

The information, products, gift card, and giveaway have been provided to me by UCAOA . All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This summer my family size was increased by one. I had the baby just weeks before school started. I tried my best to have everything and everyone ready to go for school before he was born because I knew things was only going to get busier. However things don’t always work out as we hope and plan for. 

My youngest daughter, Carly Jo, started Kindergarten this past week. That alone already required a lot of medical information add food allergies to the mix…the paperwork doubles!! I had thought I taken care of getting everything she needed to start school medically but I was wrong!! I had forgotten all about the extra paper work that we need to prove that are daughter was allergic to blueberries!

School activities had already started, so between activities and work it was hard to find the time to get to the doctor to get the paper work and physical done. Luckily our town had an urgent care. I was able to get her in when I needed to. I didn’t have to hope and pray they had an opening during the time I was able to take her. Urgent Care made my life easier and less stressful.

  1. Urgent care is such a great option for busy families! Often times we have to wait a few days at a minimum, usually like a week, to get into the doctor!
