Medical Exams Turned In

We finally turned in our Medical Examination Packets. From Dec. 8th, 2003 when we received it, to Jan. 20, 2004 is quite a while. But there were examinations, appointments, and hoops to jump through. Nothing was too traumatic. It feels very important, like we actually accomplished something and are on our way.

Now we wait for anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks, sometimes even longer, to know if we have been medically cleared or if we have to get more tests or forms filled out. After that, we may get our invitation so we know our actual volunteer site and departure date.
