We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...

T Minus 3 Days and Counting...

...until Nicky's penit snipping that is. It just became all too real for me. Talking about it is one thing. Completing the online patient history form is another! I never thought about how difficult it would be to fill out these types of forms. There were questions regarding his "family history" - well, I obviously can't give my or Kris' health history, as it wouldn't really pertain to him, although, Kris and I are his family. Very weird situation. The form didn't have an answer of "maybe" or "unsure"...just "yes" or "no"! Well, maybe his birth grandmother has had issues coming out of anesthesia. Or maybe his birth father does have hemophilia. I have no clue! I answered "no" to most of the questions, but also made a note that we flat-out don't know the answer to many of them. And - they asked about bruises - well, of course he has a bunch of bruises...he's a 2 year old! I know they're really asking more of the "does he bruise a lot and easily" question, but yes, he has a ton. He's still a bit wobbly when he tools around, so he does tend to go down to the ground a bunch! These are the kinds of things I didn't fully prepare myself for when we were gearing up to adopt in a realm of the "unknown"...kinda scary! Now I'm very nervous!!! He's still talking about it a lot - any time he's partially or fully nekked, he tells us "doctor cut penit. later. band aid?". I'll let ya know what he has to say about all this in 3 days time. Poor guy - first an enema, then an upper GI scan, now this?! He's gonna put a call in to Mother Russia and request to be brought back! I'm sure he'll wonder what the heck these crazy Americans he got stuck with are gonna do to him next! He'll for sure get quite the "prize" outta this one...I gotta go shop for something good!
