They decided not to give shots that day due to the terrible conditions inside the building, though they did give the TB tests. A few days later we had to go back to get the TB tests read and get all the shots. Obviously that wasn't fun either, and it was especially hard with Micaelyn. By the time we went back to get the shots Micaelyn had really started opening up, playing, laughing, etc. Not surprisingly, it was impossible for her to understand why we held her down and let them give her so many shots, and the resulting fever and sickness didn't help either. Thankfully our government has finally fixed their mistake so that parents are no longer forced to get their new children so many shots (usually 5-8 different ones) all at once during the critical bonding period.

After the medical appointments we had lunch at the Cow & Bridge, a popular Thai restaurant on the island. We really didn't enjoy it too much, but since he loves elephants Caleb really liked the statues outside the entrance!
