Congrats to all who've received their grant letter! Seeing your joy reminds me of ours when we received our grant letter 6 months ago.

 

Hope the rest of you get your COs & Grant letter soon! :wink:

Well our update...

 

We had to do our meds and PC checks again as they had just run out so off we went on Wednesday to get them done... Just as well we had them done this month as apparently the panel doctor is no longer working on the meds for Australia as the demand is so little now and the nearest point would be Madrid (we live in France)!!! Now that could have been nice but expensive!

 

Anyway, it was a very long day and not very easy as the Lab for the bloods is in one place, then all in the car to the X-ray place and back in the car to get the Lab results and then onto the Doctors who did our medical... The traffic and one way systems were a nightmare...

 

All was good though apart from the girls who both had blood showing in their wee, so off we go back to the Lab for more tests and plenty of water drunk. They were so nice they did it free of charge, but only one came back negative and the other child still had blood in her wee... so more water drunk (poor thing!) and finally after another test and two hours later she was negative too...

 

So, now all we can do is wait... everything is in now! Fingers crossed all is ok and we hear something soon as I am so fed up with this very very long wait now!

Wooooo Hoooooo Congratulations Rach!!!!

Wow - it is brilliant to see you turn purple at long long long last!

 

Glad the Meds are done Tasha

 

Its all coming together at last for many of us dinosaur folks!

 

Dropping in to PIO for stress relief - the removers come tomorrow - eeeck I wish I was more ready than this.

After the removers come we have to clean the flat and move out as well - we then have some free time before we fly.

A nightmare but it couldn't be helped.

Oh thanks for the info!

 

Can't say I am surprised though with so many peeps getting their visas now. We have waited over 3 years to get to this point so another 5 weeks is nothing really! I am so use to waiting now... plus 5 weeks in our house will fly by, especially as the kids are breaking up from school tomorrow!:wub:

 

Wooooo Hoooooo Congratulations Rach!!!!

Hi Vicky

 

I haven't spoken to you properly for so long now I did not realise you were so close to going!

 

Good luck with the removers and hope all goes smoothly for you!
