Nathan's Coping Mechanism in the PICU






If I had to sit in my bed all day long being poked and prodded, I'd try to find something that I liked to pass the time too. Thankfully I'm past my thumb sucking stage, but from this picture I'm guessing that Nathan will keep this up until at least 4th grade. These pictures were taken the day after his surgery last week. He's such a cutie!

If you look closely you'll see that Nathan had his IV in his right thumb. The IV went bad later that evening and they had to stick it in his left thumb instead. It was hard to see him screaming for an hour signing "ALL DONE" frantically with his free left hand. He was pretty upset that they took his favorite thumb to suck on too!

He is definitely Jakob's son with the thumb-sucking!

Like Mother, like son. 'Nuff said.
