|Out at the pool, ready for swimming,
AFTER the excitement.
|The now DEAD scorpion
YIKES! As I picked up the handle, my heart stopped and my voice screamed, "MOM!!!" There it was, a pale-colored 2 inch creature, creeping over the top of the vent bag and towards the CRIB! I have to admit, in the back of my mind, there has been the worry of one of these creatures getting near Aaron.
Mom came quickly, along with a couple of the boys. The problem with flicking it off the vent so that it could be crushed was we that were afraid we'd lose it in the cords, equipment, and general stuff in the room. So Dad was called in. About that time, the scorpion decided it was done with all the excitement and looked for a place to hide: right INSIDE the vent bag.

doing a great job!
Through it all, Aaron just hung out. LOVE that PEEP valve on his bag. It keeps the pressures open and even in his lungs so he doesn't even notice it's the bag instead of the vent. And now David knows that if needed, he can bag his little brother.
Tonight, Grampa and the boys are going scorpion hunting with a blacklight. They're kind of excited about it. I'm just grateful we found the creature.
Mostly, I'm so grateful for promptings. I thought it was weird the way I went from trying to put it off longer, mostly 'cause I just didn't want to move to getting up and moving along. I refuse to think about what would have happened if we hadn't found that beast. I just can't do that.
