(I forgot to document this in my last post about little miss Breezy so I wanted to make sure I record this so I can tell her when she's older what a good little patient she is.)
Nearly every time we go to see her oncologist, pediatrician or the hospital she is such a great little patient. In fact, she's very interested in what they need to do to her. Take, for instance the last time we went in to see her oncologist. Every time we go, which is about every 2-3 months, she needs to get either a finger poke or a butterfly in the arm to draw her blood. This last time, the nurse asked if she could take her blood and do a little poke on her finger. Well, since I had her on my lap, I braced myself for her to cry. Instead, she holds her hand out for the nurse and puts her pointer finger out for the nurse to poke her. Then says, "Here you go."
And naturally, I thought she would either cry or look to me to soothe her while she gets poked. Nope. Wrong again! ...instead she takes great interest in watching the nurse poke her finger and squeeze the blood onto the sample plate for testing. Are you as impressed as I am?
This little girl is destined for great things. She is extremely tough and yet is soft and sweet and loves to comfort others. She constantly melts my heart. She's been rather sneaky lately and will come and get in our bed at night. But, every time she does, I secretly love it. She'll caress my face and even pat my back. She'll ask me in a very quiet whisper, "you okay Momma?" and she'll make sure I have my blanket on. Then she'll tell me, "you go sleep now Momma."
Like I said,
Melts. My. Heart. :)
