They had to tape his arm to a board because he wouldn't keep it straight...go figure. And that Really ticked him off.They brought in this cute gown for him to wear. He couldn't wear one of the Baby ones because they didn't snap at the shoulder and he couldn't get it on with the IV. The poor boy was drowning in it. But it was sure cute.At this point the nurse walked in while I was taking pictures and gave me a weird look and said, "you're taking pictures of the poor kid?". What was I supposed to say? "yep". All I could think was this woman is obviously NOT A BLOGGER.
Well, I spent A LOT of my time like this.Wasn't he so cute and pathetic looking all at the same time.They kept trying to get his blood pressure which was a joke. The baby cuff came off anytime they blew it up and the child one drowned him. But it was pretty cute.By morning he was a much happier kid. Daddy came to visit and got a few smiles out of him.And he got him to play a bit. And for the record, he ended up loving the continuous pulse-ox monitor. (The thing on his foot). He was always trying to pull his sock off to get at it. This usually bumped it which sent his stats down which in turn made the machine make horrible sounding LOUD beeping noises.I am just so glad to be home- away from hourly alarm from his IV at which point a nurse would come in to make sure that his IV hadn't become infiltrated, of course waking him up from a sleep I had just managed to get him into from the previous time they had come in. Needless to say we are glad to be home and sleeping.
