Thank God for comfort items like her blankie and her little stuffed panda. Those things bring a different comfort than I ever knew they would. That and a frozen bags of peas were our saving grace. About 30 seconds in, those peas went on and stayed until the hospital replaced them with a permanent ice bag. My camera, on the other hand, ended up in the hospital because it hadn't made it in the house after our long day - and I wasn't about to leave it in the parking lot.
We got the double nurse treatment to help make things go quickly, which meant that I had to get out of the way and watch. Once our girl asked for a purple cast, those nurses matched up purple gloves with purple scissors and we had the royal treatment.
I loved that once Daddy signed with a heart, that was an expectation moving forward. 💜
Until next time,
