Tom certainly lucked out today. After being thoroughly traumatized by Friday's programme, he had the most reassuring conversation possible with the current attending, the amazing Dr. R. She's truly incredible, always upbeat and optimistic. Boy did we need a shot of that.
She simply thinks Jane is doing great. Period. She pointed out that Jane's still recovering from surgery -- a period that can last two weeks (hey -- no one said that before!), and that most kids have a really crappy time during that period (wait a minute, that's news, too), and that Jane is actually doing fabulously well considering what she'd just been through.
Well! That certainly puts a new spin on the week, doesn't it?
And shockingly, she was saying stuff like she doesn't want Jane home before Christmas because of staffing issues. Staffing issues are what are going to keep her at the hospital past Christmas? Staffing issues? I mean... seriously?
Well, if you say so, Awesomely Optimistic Dr. R. But my brain's not quite wrapping around that one.
Bonus photos from Jane's latest glamour shots session!
I'm out. I've got a Christmas card to cobble together, people, and the way this project is going I'm going to wind up with Jane's head very poorly photoshopped onto a snowman or something similarly awful and inappropriate.
