Day 178: à votre santé

Yay socialized medicine! Our health cards came in the mail today.
(important personal details edited out, naturellement)

 Don't you love the mugshot-quality photo?

Back home, we paid 50 bucks every time we walked into the doctors office. Per person. So if we had strep throat going around, it would be 100+ bucks depending on how many of us got sick - not including prescriptionsWith Christa's strep-harboring tonsils, we usually have several bouts per winter so it gets pretty pricey. Hopefully we can get a Canadian doctor to agree that she needs her tonsils taken out. We could never talk our pediatrician into it...
