The Human Pincushion

 Poor Mei Mei.  She has officially become the human pincushion!  We had our appointment with international adoption doctor on Monday where she received four shots and Wednesday she had to go have blood drawn so they could look for titers, lead levels, etc., etc., etc.  Eight vials.  Ohhhh, my sweet little girl!!!

Hopefully the bloodwork will come back showing that the immunizations that she received in China were at the correct dosages, that she has the necessary antibodies and that everything is as it should be.  I'm not holding my breath, however.  She'll probably have to get poked a few more times.  Ugh.  Such is the reality of international adoption.
Our hospital holds a cleft clinic on the third Thursday of each month, so we're scheduled to go there on the 20th.  She'll see an ENT, audiologist, SLP, plastic surgeon, orthodontist and a pediatrician.  There may be a few more specialist thrown in for good measure...I can't remember from when the Noodle went. It makes for a looong morning, but at least they keep you moving and in one appointment, you see a bevy of specialist.

Finally, she goes for a speech eval on the 26th.  March is definitely proving to be a month filled with doctors appointments.
