So I wanted to share something we learned from this past hospital visit. There is one invention we brought with us to both hospitals that literally EVERY nurse commented on. Drum roll................
So here is a challenge.........the Boppy challenge. When Jude is in the hospital he always get's a "Prayer Bear". It's from a group of people that gather bears and have them blessed at altars at local churches (truly touching) and they are so loved! The Boppy challenge could be new Boppy's purchased and dropped off at local hospitals for babies, toddlers, and the disabled. Each patient could get their own. Maybe a little note attached that says "Blessings from the Boppy challenge!". Maybe even the company that manufactures Boppy could get involved?
They truly are a blessing!!!! You can't even imagine who amazing it is to have an IV in your child's foot and you can position them in a boppy with a pillow underneath that elevates the foot......or maybe you actually can picture it?
Maybe someday we can get an Emily's Smile Boxes boppy. Little ones for NICU and bigger ones for older disabled children. Tiny Boppy's for Arm Iv's? They are a brilliant invention and so dearly appreciated by those of us who are frequently positioning children at night and in the hospital. I am currently looking at Jude resting on his Futon laying on his pillow, positioned in his Boppy, and his tube feed flowing.
