If you are new here, you can catch up on why I would make Ruby a hospital gown HERE. She will be having open heart surgery in about a month :(.
I was offered some advice to make sure and take pictures of her scar-free chest before surgery. It makes me sad thinking we don’t have much longer until her surgery. But her heart has problems that need to be fixed, and we are so thankful and amazed with modern medicine and how it can be fixed, thank goodness. The success rate is high. So we hope and pray for the best. I just learned this week that her surgery will include bypass. That is hard to think about as well.
There is so much joy and radiating beauty from her soul. Love her!!!
I know very well from Bailey’s surgery on her head how helpless one can feel while your little one suffers. Maybe this little hospital gown will make a teeny difference in her comfort.
It will smell like home. It is soft. It will allow for all the tubes and wires coming from her. It might get stained and ruined. That is ok. If the little animals on it give her something to look at, then great. If the long sleeves help keep her from pulling at her tubes and wires, excellent. My hope is that this will do her some good in her recovery, no matter how small the difference it makes. I just feel the need to do something–anything, to help her after her surgery, you know?
Complete with four snap closures and lengthened a couple inches, I made the 62cm size from the Ottobre Design 1/2006.
I’ll put on some socks with babylegs and she should be plenty warm.
