We've been on both sides of the fence. Jackson has been that kid that laid in bed, so sick that he slept all day. Jackson has lost leg muscles and lung function because he didn't stay active enough. But thankfully more often than not, Jackson has also been the kid causing nurses to laugh. He has started many, many syringe water fights. He plays bowling, and basketball, he jumps on the bed, and plays hide-n-go seek in his tiny hospital room, and he drives remote control cars.
In fact, last week when Jackson was inpatient he drove his remote control truck over the nurses. Yep, they laid on the floor and allowed my son to drive right over the top of them. He LOVED it! And I thought I'd share it with you.
Not everything about being at the hospital is horrible. Honestly we have come to LOVE the staff on the ICS unit. The staff has been so good to not only Jackson, but our entire family. The ICS unit has become home for us. Honestly, some of the coolest people we know are nurses!!
And, if we have to be stuck inpatient somewhere- there is nowhere else we'd rather be!
