It doesn’t get easier

Ruby had another lumbar puncture today. In fact I am sitting waiting for it to be over. Waiting for the call to come in and see her.

She has waited all day for this procedure. Fasting since 7am and no liquids since 11am. Her operation was at 430pm. What a star.

It doesn’t get easier watching your child fall asleep. She did not want the gas but knew she had to. So like a good girl lay down and breathed in the sleepy gas.

The kiss when she is asleep is so very hard. She looks so peaceful yet in such an unnatural environment. The sterility of the operation room. The smell of gas. I am in a nightmare.

So proud of you Ruby.
