Eva's medical exam was today.  At every station she asked if she was getting a shot and each time the answer was no, so then she was a happy little camper.  Until the TB test, of course.  Then she yanked on her arm and slouched her body and did everything any other seven year old does when faced with a shot they don't want.  As soon as it was over, she was fine.

She passed the vision test with no problem.  Her hip scars were evaluated and determined to likely be the result of diapers that were too tight-they are awful and look like the result of incisions.  Her feet were operated on a couple of years ago so she has scars from that, but they don't look half as bad as the ones on her hips.

Thanks, April. They are sad to see, especially when you realize what caused them.

My Quinn has a scar on her hip that is apparently from the elastic they use to keep the diapers on the babies. It does look like an incision! I am loving reading your updates - it brings back lovely memories of our time in China.
