Welcome to a new series on the blog where I share 5 photos from my month that capture significant or memorable moments, along with their stories.
These are from May 2020.
We had several medical appointments this month as part of our green card applications. It involved blood tests, vaccinations, and physicals. While they were all relatively straightforward, Scout found the blood draw particularly tough. She’s never had one before, and as soon as she saw the blood, she went white as a sheet, started shaking, and said she was going to throw up. She didn’t and, thankfully, the lab tech got the blood she needed, but it was an unpleasant experience and one I hope we don’t have to repeat.
(Fun fact: if you don’t get your green card within a year of your medical appointments, you have to submit to the whole medical process again, bar vaccinations. And it ain’t cheap, my friends. It ain’t cheap.)
