Being in the NICU is rough. Now that staying with Addison while she’s there is my new full time job, it can be hard to get some adult interaction. I’ve noticed there aren’t many parents that stay with their babies day in and day out because of work duties, but there are the occasional few that I constantly see.
Every day I pack a snack of some kind, a magazine, my tablet, and my phone with it’s charger to help pass the time. There’s a baby 2 beds down from Addison and his mom is there in the NICU as much as I am. I recently decided that after weeks of our babies being in the NICU, and us being in such close proximity, I should probably go up and say “Hello.” With my already read Halloween magazine and a Lindt HELLO bar in tow, I marched on over and introduced myself and shared my time-passers.
Ever since I mustered up the strength to say “Hello” we’ve been chatty Cathy’s and ask each other how our babies are doing and try to talk about whatever crazy stuff we read on Facebook or hear on the news. It’s been great, and I’m thankful I did it, because she came to my rescue on Friday when Addison had her failed extubation and gave me a shoulder to cry on.
The Lindt HELLO collection that can be enjoyed and shared with a friend 3 different ways- sticks, bars, and mini-stick bags in Caramel Brownie, Strawberry Cheesecake, Crunchy Nougat, and Cookies & Cream.
