There are some definite benefits to having a sister as a nurse:
- she'll answer your "medical emergency" call at anytime of the night
- she can uncover the truth behind the many medical urban legends
- you can use her to help you justify any "bad" habit through an explanation of the excess needed to really make the activity/item truly harmless
BUT, the BEST benefit so far is getting to see your new nephew who was supposedly locked up in the NICU and not to be visited, let alone held, by ANYONE except Mommy and Daddy!
That's right....Nurse Jenny pulled the "gone-in-Bolivia-for-6-months" card and got me into the NICU secretly to spend some sweet time with Baby Ian before I flew out!
He is doing well and is improving quickly. He no longer needs to be connected to oxygen and is on his way to leaving his little incubator! However, he has not gotten rid of all the things poked into his little body.....you might notice the bluish glow eminating from him. No, he was not beamed down from the mothership!
