Refreshed, we headed for Milo's visa medical appointment, driving palm lined streets, bright with LED billboards and tropical flowers. Everything went smoothly at each test station -- an ear/nose/throat exam, blood draw, vision test, height/weight recording, and complete physical exam where the doctor was as perplexed as we have been at Milo's uncommon CP presentation. Milo was patient with the poking and prodding, and we are thankful to have that behind us. We wait now on TB test results and our visa interview at the US Consulate, the last two things keeping us in town.
Bedtime will come early tonight, and we are ending the today a bit weary, but very thankful, with lessons learned about trust, boundaries and communication -- lessons for all of us.
