Day Eight and Nine (Leaving Nanchang and Medical Exam in Guangzhou)

These past few days have been really bittersweet. Yesterday was just a travel day and hang around the hotel doing paperwork day. We left Jiangxi and Chynna had her first plane ride. She did amazing. I was sad for her leaving her hometown, but happy we are one step closer to bringing her home.

Today we had the long awaited medical exam. How funny that is. Chynna did ENT (which consisted of a doctor playing a piano on Chynna's left side to see if she would turn her head that way, then squeezing a squeaky toy in her right ear to see if she turned that way. Passed with flying colors. The doctor then looked in her ears (she hated that) and in her mouth. Passed again. Off to the height, weight, measurements section. I remember she weighs 8.8 kg which converts to 19.4 lbs, but the other measurements I don't remember. Then off to the physical exam. The doctor there indicated Chynna has multiple mongolian spots, but is otherwise okay.

After the medical exam, we headed shopping and just looking around Shamian Island. We shopped at Jordan's and then ate at Lucy's. Afterwards we left the Island, shopped at Carafour for diapers, formula, bottles, etc.

All in all, it was a long day, but a good one. Tomorrow we go to the Chen Family Temple, and some more shopping. Will post more later. Until then enjoy the pictures.
