|Looking through Isaiah's legs|
Silly me! I thought that if we went to the hospital early in the morning, we would get in and out quickly. I was wrong! There was a room full of people all waiting for blood tests. Felix set about entertaining the people in the waiting room while we passed the time. He crawled up to one lady and looked up at her until he got her attention and she started talking to him. He turned to another lady and gave her a big smile. There was another little boy there who was a year old. Felix very bravely went up to his pram to say hello, but bolted back towards me when the little boy started crying. He has always hated it when babies cry, so he snuggled into my shoulder until he stopped crying.
Finally, after what seemed like forever, the syringe filled up and the nurse was able to remove the needle. I told Felix it was all finished, and he signed 'finished'. While the nurse was disposing of the needle and finding a bandaid for his arm, Felix looked up at me and signed 'finished' again. I think he just wanted to make sure that there was nothing else painful about to happen to him. When we were about to leave, I said to Felix, "Say thank you" (and I signed 'thank you'). I was really impressed that the nurse asked how to sign 'thank you', and she signed it to Felix. I always appreciate when people make an effort to do little things like that, above and beyond what they need to do. She was so lovely to Felix and gave him so much encouragement. It's things like that which make your day, especially when dealing with so many different health professionals all the time.
