Due to The Girl’s rare blood disorder, she had to be taken to the hospital at least once a week for blood draws.
It was unbelievably sad to watch The Girl get heel pokes. She’d cry and cry until it was over, and it seemed to get worse and worse each time, until one day, The Girl just stopped reacting. She didn’t cry, she didn’t squirm, she just watched quietly as if nothing was happening at all.
The fist pump signifies how tough she is. Super Preemie!
