This morning we went to see the family Doctor, for the kids and me. Meningitis jab for Rémy and the usual height and weight records for both him and Emma. Rémy, it appears, is quite big for his age. Well he does look older than he is, which l means of course we forget that he is only in the “moyen section at school”.
For me, well, it seems that I have a hereditary blood condition – no doubt from my Mum’s side of the family. Tests are ongoing, however, the worst is now over with. They know roughly what it is and can now keep an eye on me. Would I be so well looked after back home on the NHS back “home”? No… I don’t think so.
The sad thing is, though, with this being hereditary it means that in the next few years both my kids will have to be checked too to see if they’ve not got the same blood complaint. This is something I really didn’t want to give them.
Well, time for lunch… courgettes rolled in ham with bechamel. Mmmm…
