It was yesterday when three of us went to the hospital (the place where I was born) for my BCG vaccine, since mom cannot read kanji dad escorted us because there was a form that need to be filled and all written in kanji . It was about our family health background; mom have a history of tuberculosis and was healed three years before ... for that reason dad was hesitate to give me the vaccine.

We meet the doctor (not the same doctor of my heart problem) and they talked about moms' history of tuberculosis they say that since mom was healed before I was born they think that its okay to give me the vaccine, another thing dad asked was about my heart problem .... the doctor says that my heart problem doesn't matter, then after the conversation the doctor with his stethoscope checked my heartbeat after a long silent he said that he didn't hear any murmur (thanks God). So the conversation ends with a smile on my parents face.

We hope that the hole in my heart had closed because this month of 17th I still need to have an echo x-ray. Anyway we left the hospital because the BCG vaccination there were scheduled every Friday and we didn't got an appointment because it was full so we landed into small hospital near our place. This time it was a long conversation about me and moms' health history. In the end instead of the vaccine the doctor gave me a tuberculin skin test. We stayed there about half an hour to observe me for any reaction. They need to observe me for 48 hours and if no reaction occurs we will go back there tomorrow for a true BCG vaccine.
