Thank you friends and family for your kind phone calls, emails and comments about Harris' procedure yesterday. It will be a couple of days until we get the biopsy results but we did get some preliminary good news! The doctor said that Harris' esophagus looked healthy (compared to the last scope) and that there were no furrows or inflammation that he could see.
Are you ready for adorableness overload?
My Mom made Harris an Owie doll to take with him to the hospital. Owie dolls are amazingly resilient because they are constantly being bruised, scraped and broken and yet they always have a smile on their face and the ability to make children feel better.
I first saw the Owie doll on Ikat's Bag Esty store where she sells the dolls. I was thrilled to discover that she also sells the pattern to make your own Owie doll. I always assume that my Mother can make anything I ask her too and she can- which is a happy thing!
One of the neatest things about Owie are his band aids. They are velcro that stick to him and come off without pulling the fabric (I had to order the fabric online).
He wears a hospital gown that ties in the back. Harris loves that my Mom also made him some white "underwear!"
Owie has a medic bag to hold all of his medical supplies- band aids, bandages, a cast, and an arm sling . My Mom is also making Owie a head wrap and an eye patch.
Harris absolutely loves his Owie! He took him to the hospital yesterday where everything that was done to Harris was done to Owie- the nurses were even nice enough to give Owie his own arm bracelets!
My Mom asked that I never ask her to sew anything again. You don't suppose she's serious do you?
