We can go outside? Can't we?"
"We can go outside" is not a question but a statement so do not end it with a question mark. Instead, it should be "We can go outside, can't we?" "Can't we?" is the tag to your statement so it shouldn't be separated. You may want to check the rest of the examples above like "You did not take all the medicines. Did you?" Again, they should be combined into one sentence.

As I think, a comma was missing there.

Great writing! Keep in mind that because it's a "tag" it can actually be attached to the end of the sentence: You like writing blogs, don't you?

Can you find something missing here? "I want but I was thinking about your health."
