A wee little TMI story (feel free to skip over this — it’s part of our story, but not a crucial part):

Monday: I get a physical. This was pretty okay until they asked when I had last gotten my girly bits checked out. Oh, dang, it was gonna be one of those visits. The exam goes lightning fast, though. Then they ask if I have gotten a flu shot. A ho-hum check, and a shot? Double dang.

Tuesday: Nursing my sore arm, I go to the dentist for a routine teeth cleaning. I tell them I’m concerned about one of my teeth that’s been slowly graying over the past six months. We take x-rays, proceed with the teeth cleaning, and they’ll call me in the morning with the x-ray results.

Todd gets a flu shot, too.

Wednesday: Turns out the nerve in my tooth is dying, the dentist tells me the next morning. I need a root canal and crown. They have a last minute cancellation that afternoon, so I go in for the root canal. Through some miracle of mother nature, my tooth has partially healed itself, so I don’t actually need a root canal, but he has already drilled 13mm into my tooth to find out this interesting fact. The dentist plugs up the hole, and I’m good to go. That night, my tooth twinges a little after the novacaine, and I have to switch sides between sleeping on it, and my Still Sore arm.

Thursday: Todd gets a filling. We V’s must have bad teeth! He comes home aching, and regales me with his adventures in laughing gas: The dental assistants started him on the gas, but then refused to give him more even though it was having no effect. Finally they noticed there was a kink in the hose, and the gas hit him all at once. So much so that Todd had to literally suppress giggles when he thought of a brilliant plan to lick all of the dentist’s instruments and freak him out…

(Remember when we mentioned in passing that I’m going to try to nurse? Who knew that there’s a whole adoptive nursing camp out there, and they have all sorts of stories, nursing aids and advice and, um, protocols, for starting and succeeding at it. Soon after meeting Aria and her family, I got the ball rolling. By ball rolling, this means pills 4 times a day, pumping every three hours (I confess that I’m really bad at getting in that many a day), oatmeal, and when I drop one kind of pill in a few weeks, I get to start taking up to 2 kinds of herbs. Woof. Even with all that, it’s not guaranteed that adoptive mothers can produce enough milk to breastfeed exclusively. I’m eager to produce as much milk as I can, but will be all right with whatever happens…)

Back at Thursday: I’m kind of dragging my feet to pump in the evening. Being poked and prodded half the week is getting to me, so getting pulled is not high on my list. But pump I do, and for the very first time something happens. A single drop of adoptive mother’s milk comes forth from my bosom. I yell for Todd, and show off the teeniest shimmer of liquid. It’s a nightcap fit for…well, maybe not Eelfang, but certainly Tom Thumb.

I go to sleep Thursday night so pleased and proud of this body God has graced me with; achy tooth, ouchy arm, at least halfway-working girl parts, and all.
