TPT#206 - A Series Of Unfortunate Events

At the time of recording, George was supposed to be preparing to visit Child#2 at his mother's house, out of state. But emergency rooms kept happening. Thankfully, not for him this time. We consider, for a moment, the oddities of being treated as male in these situations, how it is different from his prior treatment, and then return to managing the situations.

TPT#205 - Old Guy Problems

George's body has seemed to age a little more rapidly in the past few years, and while we're not sure whether that's a result of HRT, or stress, or environment, or a little of each, the result is the same. He weighs less, but his pants are tighter. His back and neck pain have increased. And the process of finding a mattress that will better support his aging back has been a long one.

TPT#204 - Everybody Needs To Be Thinking

We attended the women's march solidarity event for our region, and it was pretty cool. George is a feminist, a TransDad, and a man who was perceived as female for decades, all of which make him a heck of a feminist father. But how to act on that feminism? How does one act as an ally and accomplice in movements for the rights of the oppressed, when one is a member of the dominant (and historically oppressive) culture?

TPT#203 - Women Do It Better

George's insurance plan rolled over at the new year, and he needed to re-authorize a prescription. Child#2's prescriptions may not be covered for some time until his new insurance is effective in his new state. And Republicans in congress don't care who gets insurance or not, so long as they get to enforce their expectations and worldview. But no matter what is wrong, we know that some woman, somewhere, will be competent to take care of it.

TPT#200 - And A Sex Toy Infomercial At The Hospital

♪♫ On the adjusted date of Christmas, the universe gave to me: twelve-hour workdays, eight forgotten presents, five diabetic crashes, two cases of norovirus, and a sex toy infomercial at the hospital! ♪♫

As usual, we celebrated Christmas on a day that was not 25 December, but as not-usual it went fairly smoothly. The fun didn't start until later, but when it did, George's status as male made his mother's care easier to manage, and his trans status made his own hospital visit slightly more confusing.

TPT#199 - Chosen Family

When Child#2 was adopted by George and his ex-wife, they had no clue just how uniquely challenging he would become. We are now preparing for him to move out of state with her, with hope for his improved wellbeing as well as for our sanity. Recordkeeping and other issues could arise, however, when George is still listed on the kid's birth certificate as his mother, and his actual mother isn't listed at all!

TPT#198 - Shoes To Throw

Can we find a home for the surprise dogs? Will George's birthday combine with Child#3's birthday well? Will Child#0 come to live with us? Is George irritable because of decreased testosterone? Holiday JOY for the whole freaking family abounds, but we don't get to have our holidays yet.

TPT#197 - Broken String All Gone

Christmas giraffes and flamingoes and dinosaurs are a perfect wrap-up for this bizarre year. George's birthday present made him smile, but he still deals with more irritability than usual as we finish Child#3's birthday celebrations. Did we mention that this is the final section of the discussion we started two weeks ago?
