Playing Doctor

Whenever Sara is here, she loves to play doctor with Caleb's real medical equipment!  They have it all:  suction catheters, a feeding bag, syringes, gloves, masks, etc.  You know, all the usual stuff a kid needs to play doctor, right?!

Sara is feeding the baby, Ab, through her gtube.  We put water in the feeding bag and run it through.  Caleb wants a feeding pump for Christmas.  :)

Sara knows how to suction Ab and reminds herself to only go down 4 cm everytime she does it. 

Suctioning the trach

Listening to Ab's heart and lungs with a real stethescope.

Ab survived the examination!  (What?  Don't your baby dolls have a trach and gtube??)

I thought it looked like the babydoll had a trach! We have one with a stoma & ostomy bag! :)
