Whale Watching

You were measured for the Doc Band today and it was hands down the hardest thing I have had to witness you experience to date. Yes, even worse than the catheter you had to get when we were having your kidneys checked out.

A gauze mask called a stockinette was fitted over your entire head and face and you were placed on a metal perch and photographs were taken of your head from every angle. Technically, this process is called Digital Surface Imaging and it uses 15 high-resolution cameras to capture a 360-degree image.

You screamed bloody murder as a loud cartoon played in front of you and one clinician held your arms close to your sides and another waved a brightly colored wand above your head. You were scared and had no idea what was happening to you and there was not a thing I could do about it. I couldn't talk to you or touch you, for fear of you moving, so I just sat in the back of the room and sobbed.

Your custom fit Doc Band will arrive in two weeks.

On the lighter note, today we also went for a great walk on our beautiful beach with our Mommy & Me friends, Jenn and her son Tristan. We saw a whale! It was gorgeous day.

The best is yet to be.
