We get to the mall and my heart is racing. I feel really bad so I asked mom if she would hold her while I videotaped. Mom said yes but tells me later she almost had a heart attack while doing it. Maddox has had so many blood draws and pokes that this was nothing. She cried for about 90 seconds afterward and you know what, I loved every second of it. It sounds crazy I know but you have to know our history. When Maddox was in the hospital and they would take vial after vial, she never cried. I was so scared, she either didn’t feel pain or was too lethargic to notice. After every draw, I would ask if she had cried yet and I kept getting no for an answer. So today I got to play mommy, I got to hold her and comfort her because it hurt, this is a normal thing and while my heart broke, I was ecstatic. The gals who did the piercing did a great job. Who ever said that Maddox has low tone is also wrong. We found out today that she hates to be restrained and is extremely strong. This gave me some hope. We will be crawling by 9 months and walking my 14 months. You wait and see. Maddox is one tough cookie!
Sito about had a heart attack while holding Maddox. As you can see above. Really, the worst part of this event was holding Maddox down, she does not like to be restrained.
