Today’s post is in the style of Margaret Wise Brown’s Good Night Moon. This classic bedtime story is fitting for this sleepy baby.
But it needed a little modification for her recent hospital stay .
In the style of “Goodnight Moon“
In the great purple PCICU room
There was a cardiac baby
And a family connected only by Zoom.
There were colorful headbands and tiny hair bows
And a nasal cannula resting inside the nose.
There were IV bags and medication drips
And colorful toys and pacifier dips.
And a tank of nitric oxide and a long chest tube
And black pacing wires and surgical lube.
There were computers with Epic login screens
And doctors, and nurses, and a cardiac team.
Goodbye purple PCICU room.
Goodbye cardiac baby
And conversations on Zoom.
Goodbye headbands. Goodbye tiny bows.
Goodbye nasal cannula inside the nose.
Goodbye IV bags. Goodbye medication drips
Goodbye colorful toys and pacifier dips
Goodbye nitric oxide.
Goodbye chest tube.
Goodbye pacing wires and surgical lube.
Goodbye Epic login screens.
Goodbye doctors and nurses.
Goodbye PCICU cardiac team.
*We returned home from the hospital this afternoon. Becky and I were gone for almost a month. I will update soon.
