Real Life 101

When your nurse calls out and you have two kids with doctor’s appointments, what do you do?  You go.April 5 078

I let Becca talk me into just using Joy’s stroller instead of taking her wheelchair.  I should have taken her wheelchair – it has room for all of her equipment – that vent gets heavy on the shoulder!  :) 

I think things went well.  We got all kinds of looks and we had to give some xopenex and do some suctioning, but Bella truly seemed to enjoy being out and about.  People were really curious and we got lots of sideways glances.  :)  The nurses just openly stared.  I thought that was funny.  One sweet Mom walked up to me and in her broken English told me that her 11 year old son was once on machines, and now he doesn’t need them anymore.  She told me Jesus did it and I should ask Him to bless her.  What a sweet lady!  To take the time to try to encourage me.  :)                    

As you can see in this short video, she was in a great mood today!

I am so happy she is doing so well.
What a difference a year makes.

Love you girl.
