This is Ashlea's imaginitively named ABC Duck (he sings the ABC's in case you're wondering). He goes everywhere with her as you can probably tell by the colour of him. He has been to nearly every department of the hospital and could quite possibly now be considered a bio-hazard himself.
Today he came to clinic and had a blood test. I love how patient our pathology collectors are that they did a blood test on ABC Duck. He then had his chest listened to and his temperature taken - all while the nurse was trying to do those things to Ashlea.
My other girls have often played medical games (like extreme doctors) - it is lovely to see Ashlea be able to start to process her experiences through play too.
Maybe next time we go to clinic ABC Duck should visit the autoclave though???
