Can I tell you how heartbreaking it is when D is getting poked and prodded with needles (in the hospital, with the vaccines this am) and his little eyes manage to find me and give me a look that screams "MOM WHY ARE YOU LETTING THESE PEOPLE TORTURE ME???"

    Our friend had similar experience when her 3 day old boy developed jaundice that required hospitalization here in Zurich. He had blood transfusion, and was under the lamps constantly. I forget what the doctors were trying to do, but our friend almost wept as her little boy was screaming at the top of his lungs and they wouldn't let her comfort him in any way. (She stayed with us during that episode since our apartment is five minutes by foot from the hospital.) I am sorry you had to go through that too.

  2. Oh god, poor thing! They at least were nice enough to practically kick me out of the room whenever they knew they were going to do something that would make him scream and I wouldn't be able to do anything about, so I wouldn't have to see/hear it. =(

  3. I cried the first time Josie got shots. I haven't cried at any of her shots since, but it does break my heart that she doesn't understand what is happening.
