On Monday, we are headed back to the hospital. This time though, we are only going for a visit. Jemma has to get a chest xray to check for any signs of lingering pneumonia, pneumothorax, or any other issues. After that, we head up to the Pulmonology clinic for a follow-up visit. They will likely do some blood work and swabs for Staph while we are there too.
I will be honest with you. I am dreading all of this. I don’t want to have to hold her down for the xray. I don’t want to have to hold her while they poke and prod at her little body. I don’t want to have to even walk in the building. The whole thing makes me nervous and brings back memories I don’t want to deal with. I know I have issues with some post-traumatic stress after all of this. I broke down in tears today thinking about having to go back there. I am not sure how to get through it right now though and I have no choice but to go back there. We have to know how she is doing.
So, instead of focusing on that stuff, I am going to share a few pictures of my little miracle baby.
Jemma has learned how to climb stairs. This was Friday and that is the top of 13 steps.
She also is very happy to have some “new” toys. I pulled out some of the big kids’ old toys for her.
I will update you all on her appointment as soon as I can. Wish us luck and send some prayers up for us please!
