The result of my lapse in patience was sweet, sweet contact with the Peace Corps. Seriously, I feel like an obsessed third grader with a crush on an unresponsive middle schooler. Any contact is a sign they looooooove meeeeee.
Anyway, I e-mailed the contact I was given on my medical review packet but got a response from the nurse reviewing my file, who said she glanced at it and thought everything looked ship-shape and that the she will try to get to the full review in the next week!
First of all: I was worried that my immunization records regarding my varicella (chicken pox) vaccinations would be insufficient and I would need a titer, but I do not. So yay cash monies in the bank!
Two: She said she sees no reason at this point for deferral. To be expected, but still good to hear *crosses fingers, knocks on wood, salt over shoulder, etc.*
Three: I HAVE A TIME FRAME. Seriously this is life-giving, rare-as-gold news. And apropos of nothing too–I did not even ask for a time frame or for when it would be reviewed. To those not going through the Peace Corps app. process let me just say, having a concrete time frame is blessed news, given the PC’s most popular mantra is wait, we’ll get to you when we do, have patience, etc.
Seeing ‘in the next week’ inspired a hallelejah chorus. Legit.
Moral of the story: Impatience pays off? Probably not a good take away.
Anywho, this will updated in the next week then with medical news.
