...and other kids have security cannula. Hallie has taken to grasping her nasal cannula tubing all the time. She waves her hands at us holding her cannula. She sleeps holding her cannula. And she sits in her Bumbo chair holding her cannula:
I guess that it makes some sense given that she never goes anywhere without her cannula...except for when she rips it off of her face (about 20 times a day these days). But I don't think that she makes the connection, so to speak, between the evil prongs in her nose and her beloved cannula.
We're trying to get her to hold her lovies and taggies and blankets, but nothing oh nothing is better than her lovely cannula.
Oh, the life of a preemie on oxygen.
I'm not sure what we're going to do when she's finally off the oxygen (can't come a moment too soon for all of us) and we need to explain why our kid runs around with a piece of plastic tubing in her hands at all times.
