Actually it's the US government that needs more cowbell ... if the cowbell is called the I-693.
What's that?, asked the constant reader.
Well the I-693 is the Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status. I'm an alien who is just trying to make his way in the world and adjust his status ... but for some weird reason I neglected to hand in the aforementioned form. D'oh!
However, the USCIS are being terribly good about it, and have given me 80'odd days to get it stamped and signed and posted so they can continue to process my application. Hurrah.
The medical is not really much of a medical, really. Since I had the Delux version of the medical exam back in Auckland, I'm good to go as far as that's concerned. All they need at this end is a confirmation of the various immunization jabs I had administered to me. Probably involves one or two blood tests. Maybe a swab. Wonder if I can get them to test my cholesterol while they're at it?
