Medical Checks Completed

The Australian government wants to make sure we are healthy enough to live temporarily in Sydney. So, before they will grant our visa, we had to undergo Medical Checks by an approved Panel Doctor. Luckily there was a panel doctor in the L.A. area who could see us right away.
The kids each got a 2 minute look over. It was kind of like the check ups they give each other with their toy doctor's kit. Look in your ears, listen to your heart, say "Ahhh". Next.
The grown ups had to get chest x-rays to prove we are not bringing TB into the country with us. I am not kidding you when I say this was the most antiquated x-ray equipment I have ever seen. It looked something like this:



If my skin starts to take on a strange glow we will all know why!
Hopefully we will "pass" the medical tests and our visas will be processed quickly. We're still hoping for a March 1 start date in Australia. We'll just have to wait and see!
