BIG THANK YOU TO TRACI LIBERTO, a fellow CF mom, who told me about a cool Vest Bear Buddy that Hill Rom Vest company was giving out to lil' CFers!!! All I had to do was call Hill Rom and ask for one and they were on back order when I called, but we just received it the other day!!! WOOHOO!!
Lil' Chris LOVES it, even though he won't admit it all the time!!! It wears a Vest just like him!!! AND you can even pump it up and inflate it's Vest!!! It's pretty cool! It has velcro straps just like Lil' Chris' Vest too!!! Somebody was pretty smart when they invented this bear to help lil' ones to do their Vest treatments:) The best part is that it fits on all bears or stuffed animals or dolls that size!!! Ayla likes it on her bear :)
I asked Lil' Chris what he wanted to name the bear and he said "Chris!" I wonder why?!? :) My guess is b/c he can relate to it :(
Enjoy the video of him putting his Vest on and the bears Vest on and then doing the Vest treatment together and then taking the Vests off together. At the end is a lil' glimpse of when he doesn't want to do his Vest sometimes. He's usually pretty good about it, but he does have his moments!! It's just heartbreaking, but Mommy can't give in, b/c it's important for him to stay as healthy as possible!!! WE NEED A CURE NOW!!! Please take 2 minutes and donate today, just click the "great strides" link on the top right of this blog. Our walk is only 2 weeks from today!!!! YEA!!!
