Medical exam was scheduled for 8:00 this morning in Kingston, only place in Jamaica to get medical done. He said he was there about 3 1/2 hours. Said they drew blood, took chest X-ray, eye exam, checked his ears nose and throat, his chest, abdomen, pelvis and his reflexes. He had his shot records and fortunately he did not have to have any other vaccinations. Woo Hoo!!!!!! They told him to come back on Wednesday next week to pick up his medical report to take with him for the interview. Since he lives on the North Coast about 2 hour drive to Kingston we are gonna pick it up when I arrive in Jamaica 2 days before the interview. They said that was fine. 2 more weeks and this leg of the process will hopefully be OVER!!!!!
