A special boy named Renn is back in the hospital for another round of epilepsy tests. This post is part of a blog party to encourage/entertain him during his hospital stay.
When my daughter was younger, we went to a hospital in Denver, and scientists studied the electrical pulses in her brain.
It didn’t hurt her. In fact, her job was to take a nap. She was good at her job.
I’ll bet you know a lot of different ways that doctors can study the brain. Some of the machines have fancy names. I think it’s fun to learn about all the tools doctors have to help us. Do you?
But I also know it can be boring hanging out in the hospital all day. Another time while my daughter was staying in the hospital, she was bored and kept pulling off her oxygen sensor. Every time she pulled it off, little lights would blink and machines would beep. She may have been small, but she really knew how to keep those nurses running!
You must be very brave and strong and patient to handle all the different tests. But then again, I hear you are training to be a Jedi.
Well, even Jedi Warriors need a little fun now and then. So I made a lightsaber paper craft for you. In the end, you’ll have a finger-sized lightsaber, like this:
I made a few options for you because I’m not sure which might be the most powerful in a hospital (Instructions are included on each sheet.):
1. Luke Skywalker Lightsaber
2. Yoda Lightsaber
3. Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber
4. Darth Vader Lightsaber
My daughter is now a bubbly two-year-old, and thankfully she’s as healthy as can be. Sometimes I wish she and her sister moved a little slower…
I could use a good Jedi around here to convince them they “don’t need to play in the pantry.” Ah, well. Keep practicing and maybe you could do your tricks long distance for me some day.
May the Force be with you, Renn!
