Harris and the hospital


Harris had an endoscopic scope yesterday to try to figure out why food keeps getting stuck in his throat. We were able to go to an amazing children's hospital and the nurses were terrific at getting Harris comfortable and involved in the whole process of getting an IV. He practiced putting the IV in a doll and when the time came for him to get the IV he didn't even cry! The whole process went great until he finally woke up, ate a popsicle and promptly brought that popsicle right back up (I know, I know... you really wanted that piece of information!). Several hours later and one anti-nausea medication and we were on our way home. We were super proud of Harris and how great he did throughout the entire day!

  1. Oh dear! I hope they get it figured out soon. So glad they had a children's hospital, in my (limited) experience, it makes it so much easier!

  2. Hurray for Harris! We pray this is something he may outgrow. He must be excited for Halloween, and we look forward to more photos.
