MAY I INTRODUCE...

Ben's nurse...Stevie.
She's learning how to listen to his lungs. She described them as 'scratchy'.
Carrying Big Ben up to his tub.
Can't resist a smooch on the way up.
Stevie is always eager to help her brother. This girl can do it all. She suctions, caths, gives medication, makes up his feedings and can set them for the right rate and dose, keeps his mouth sparkly clean and his lips covered in chapstick. I keep telling her she'll be a great nurse someday.

Sounds like she's already a great nurse! What a joy to have in your life.

Erica said...

Oh my gosh she is SO adorable and sweet. Kara is the same way, helping me with Ethan but does not have near as many tasks. Still, the love behind it is what counts. People have talents such and cooking or knitting or sports...but compassion is one of my favorites :)

She's learned by example.
You're both great nurses!

What a sweetheart! She is learning early lessons of the Savior in taking care of her brother. I love the pictures- he is just so adorable.

She's learning from the best there is. Good for her to continue the third generation of nursing.
