Next it was time to collect information about my body. Most of the things I had done before, so it was easy to help the nurse.

I stepped on the scale so she could weigh me. I stood up straight against the wall so she could measure how tall I was. I grew a whole inch since my last doctor’s visit! She used a thermometer on my forehead. to take my temperature. Something new to me!

I put my finger in a finger pillow to count how many times my heart beats per minute and how much oxygen is in my body. Finally, the nurse checked my heart and lungs. I took giant breaths while she used a stethoscope to listen.
