I do love our cardio appointments because our doctor is fabulous about being on time! We arrived 15 minutes early and were called back 5 minutes before our appointment. Hailey has always hated doctor appointments...EVER appointment. First came height and weight. Not a single tear...not a single arched back. There was a "friend" from Child Life that was with us armed with an iPad. Hailey didn't seem too interested at first because she was too busy trying to figure out what the nurse was doing to her. Then came time for pulse ox. We have never gotten a good reading on the first try. There have even been appointments where they gave up because Hailey never cooperated and didn't show any signs of distress. 100 first try! Woot! Woot!
|We tried her right hand, but apparently that didn't work because she wanted to use her right hand on the ipad, so we switched!|
|Keeping an eye on them.|
|Totally avoiding the ipad...only focused on the nurse|
|Did you really do this to me?!?!?|
|After the EKG, I put her shirt back on. She looked at me, signed and said, "All done"|
|She followed it with "Up, home"|
Good news, everything looks good and we go back in a year. At that point, if she thinks Hailey will be still for an echo, we will schedule one then or we will wait another year.
I left with a sigh of relief. I "might" have bought Hailey a little jewelry for her birthday after we left ;-)
