Nurse Alexis!!!!

The biggest and only downfall about being discharge from the hospital is the friends you make. We were living in the hospital for 50 days so we were bound to make friends. We loved all the staff but there's always some that you click better with then others. This is a picture of one of our favorite nurses Jill. She not only gets along with Craig and I, she also loves Alexis and Alexis couldn't wait to come and see Makynna and I just to see her friend Jill. Jill made her a name badge that said Alexis White nurse in training and gave her a sethoscope. So whenever Alexis was there she would follow Jill around and help her with what she could. The little duck that Alexis is holding is called the Chemo Duck and it has a central line just like Makynna's. Alexis likes to hook things up to it pretending that she was working on the duck. Jill made sure to tell Alexis to never touch Makynna's central line unless mommy, daddy or a nurse was there helping her. But like every child when they are told not to do something they automatically do it. I found myself yelling NO to Alexis as she tried to hook a syringe up to Makynna's central line. That could be bad. She has not tried it since.

Good nurses make all the difference in the world, don't they?
