10.6.365: We *Heart* Children’s Hospital

Every time I drive by this giant heart at Children’s Hospital I think to myself, “I should stop and take a picture.” Then I keep driving because I’m generally two minutes away from being late to our appointment. Today as we were leaving, I actually did it.

There is something about the bright red against the blue, blue sky that grabs me.

9.22.365: Not done yet.

I love Children’s Hospital. Real, honest, Love. Capital L. I truly believe they saved Bright’s arm.

But, I can still say that no matter how great I think they are, I’m tired of seeing them. I’m tired of waiting rooms and doctor’s offices. I’m tired of chicken nugget dinners. I’m tired of driving two hours each way in a sketchy car with no air conditioning. I’d like to be done now, pretty please.

Instead we’re stepping up the appointments again because her scar is getting too thick. They want to watch it closely so they can intervene before it starts to restrict her movements.

I’m grateful for doctors that care. I really am. I’d still like to be done. It’s okay to feel a little bit sorry for ourselves, isn’t it?

7.20.365: Waiting

At the oldest’s doctor’s check-up, they decided her arm was not doing well and sent us to the ER. The ER decided that they couldn’t deal with how not well her arm was doing and sent us to the local(ish) children’s hospital. To keep her entertained while we waited, I let the girl-child play with my Shiny!New! camera. This is the Oldest’s picture of us waiting to be admitted.

And waiting. And waiting. We did that for seven days.
