We are really grateful for nurses that push us….and tonight we experienced a definite upside of that encouragement with our first walk with Liam. When we were first asked about taking him out on a walk, we were a hesitant yes…but we also didn’t have a stroller that we could use (we only have one that is a car seat clip in frame, and one that is for kids out of an infant seat). But this didn’t deter our nurse. She called us back on her day off and told us that she would bring in her stroller from home. So, excuses all used up, the stroller came in today with our nurse and we found time to take him out and about just before dinner. It did require bringing along the medication pole which forced a slower pace, but we made a loop around the NICU and a couple loops around the 4th floor. Moments of normal things, even in non-normal settings, are cherished.
