I’m SO behind on my blogging…have a couple of little funny things to share…
So, a week or so ago when we had to be at the hospital for the water deprivation test Faith was still in the middle of her extreme thirst. As the name suggests we had to deprive Faith of all fluids for the test so we were giving her a paci in place of her bottle. At some point she drops her paci and Chuck picks it up, washes it off and sticks it back in her mouth. She sucks the water off of it and drops it again. Again, he picks it up, washes it off, and puts it back in her mouth. She proceeds to suck the water off, drop it and ask her daddy to give it back to her. About this time Chuck realizes…she’s doing this to get the water. He picks the paci up this time and just holds it. Faith starts fussing and pointing to the sink and telling her dad (in 16 mo old speak) to wash it off! He tells her no, brushes it off and hands it to her. She picks up the paci, kneels down, RUBS THE PACI ON THE FLOOR, stands back up, stretches her hand up to give the paci back to her daddy, and then adamantly points to the sink! Smart little toot!! (WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH HER AS A TEENAGER???)
The other day I was changing Faith’s infusion set. This consists of inserting a canulla under her skin (much like an IV only not in the vein).
The needle for this is pretty long…
I get it inserted and lay the needle in my lap, safely away from the other 3 kids who are watching, and finish taping everything down and attaching the tubing. Faith all of a sudden starts kicking like a mule and….
KICKS THE NEEDLE THROUGH MY JEANS AND ALL THE WAY INTO MY LEG!! OUCH!!
I guess I deserve that after all the poking I’ve done on her these past few months… ;)
