Way Back When-esday: Look at Me NOW!!!


Lily...March 2008...just over 3 months old


Today at the gym, I saw someone familiar. It was Lily's night nurse, Miss Venus, from when she was hospitalized before her surgery. She was our favorite. Her and the Nurse's Aid, Fiona. They always knew just how to keep Lily comfortable and that's where Lily got her nickname Lily bean ... from Fiona. She would come through at night with fresh warm blankets and get Lily all snuggled down for the night. Lily was so very tiny back then...that was why she was hospitalized. Her diagnosis (besides her heart condition) was Failure to Thrive. Lily was just over 3 months, I think, and she was barely weighing 9 lbs. This was when she had to have the NG tube put in...after that, she started gaining some weight.

Lily...with NG tube added

Just chilling at the hospital...This visit lasted 11 days.

So...My Way Back When-esday post is being brought to you by seeing a wonderful nurse today. Sadly, I don't have any pictures of the nurses during our stay...but I do have some of Sweet Lily.
