With the wonders of medical technology these days, having a baby is a little different than it was say twenty years ago. A baby can be born via surrogate, from donor eggs and sperm, and I'm sure a host of other ways that I'm not even too familiar with. In Olivia's case, I gave her life, but our care wouldn't have been enough to keep her going to where she is today. On our last clinic visit we went up to the PSHU to visit some of our favorite nurses and happened to run into our doctors. Dr. Ilbawi was also making rounds and stopped to by for a rare chat. One of the nurses suggested that we take a picture and called us "Olivia's Care Team".
As you can see, despite the fact that it was truly a wonderful moment for us as parents to be with Dr. Ilbawi, Olivia didn't quite feel the same. To her, he was just another guy in scrubs out to do something unpleasant to her as a patient. Dr. Ilbawi was a good sport about it, he just wanted a little loving from Little Missy.
