Medical at St, Luke's today Aug 2

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My beloved Sarah is having her medical at St. Luke's as we speak. She sent me txt about 40 minutes ago telling me they called her name for the physical exam----my only concern is her period is irregular, and she sent me a msg earlier that she had some spotting, but then an hour later said it had stopped. While returning another day to finish might not be a problem for many, since Sarah lives in Davao, it is no small expense to arrange these trips (well, not huge expense in dollar terms, but by Philippine standards, quite a cost.) I only pray the cycle holds off another hour or two. I am sure she will txt me when the physical is complete, but until then, I wait anxiously.

By the way, Sarah arrived at 5:10am today, and was given priority number 86.

We have an embassy interview date of Aug 10th, assuming of course everything goes ok with the medical. I split the medical from the interview into 2 trips---cost is about the same, but she doesn't really want to stay in Manila so long----no place like home.

As far as hotels, there are many choices, but two that seem to be standouts are the Casa Bocobo, and the Lotus Garden Hotel----at least if you are on a budget. There are much better available if you want to spend, and much worse available in any price range, but I am aiming for location and value, and these two seem to fit the requirements.

I apologize if this is TMI for anyone, but thought some might like to know. Sarah just barely made it past the exam. She was spotting at 0830, which stopped by 1000. Her physical exam started about 1130am. By 100pm she had been sent for her immunization interview (which was not finished until 5:00pm or so). She waited 4 hours for that step. By 6:00pm she was in the hotel, and informed me her period had now fully started. So, she was only 5 hours away from not being able to complete the exam. God was smiling upon us today!

She was told to return tomorrow for her results and vaccinations. I know there is still the possibility of an Xray issue, but I feel pretty good about her passing now. Hopefully tomorrow God will still be smiling upon us.

And for what it is worth, she chose the medical exam date, not me. I had suggested August 18th or around that time, to ensure we were be clear of this potential issue, but she was confident that today would be fine. Turns out she was right I guess.

The other noteworthy item she told me was that the doctor doing the immunization interview asked if she wanted to be immunized now, or wait until she gets to the USA. Thankfully Sarah said she would rather receive now, as I am sure waiting until her arrival would have been costly to me. I think this is noteworthy, insofar as I have not seen any reports about the option being offered. Since the immunizations are included in the clinic exam fee, it would be unwise to defer them, unless one had a compelling medical need to delay. Others may want to coach their beneficiaries on this matter.

Once xray, and one embassy interview away from final approval now!

Best of luck to you two. I hope that when it is time for my fiancee to go for her medical, it is not the first week of the month :)
