Default OMG MEDICAL REQUESTS THROU ALREADY!!

A week on and we are still shocked. We had our medical request letter through last thursday. We weren't expecting to get them for another 12months having received a letter from the immigration dept 2 weeks earlier to say we will hear within 12 months if not heard after 8 months contact them. Then 2 weeks later through our letter box pop's the med requests. We are still on cloud nine. We only started our process at the end of April (this year) and it's all happening so fast, which is great. We now have 60 days to book our medical.
Hopefully we will be in Canada for Chrimbo 2010!

Anyone got any advice for the medicals or anything we need to know?

All the best with your medical
Drink plenty of water and lay off the booze for a good 48hrs before your meds and try relax during your exam, you may find it a benefit to have you blood pressure checked prior to having your meds 140/90 or below you should be fine.
Hope this helps

regards

I am sure that I read somewhere on a previous thread to also lay off sugary things as that sends your blood sugar levels up...

Good luck!
