You Save Lives, I Do Amusing Things to Our Dogs. So?

I have no one to talk to while the DNB is on call.

The Buds and I go upstairs, where I start to read. Noticing that Aikane is fluffing blankets and arranging pillows to get comfortable on the bed, I get a brilliant idea. The travel neck pillow!

"Look!" I text the DNB, sending him a photo of my handiwork.

He doesn't reply.

"BABY!" I try again. "Look at the picture!"


"It's so cute! I think he thinks he can't move with it on. It's ADORABLE!"

Still nothing.

Then, "Oh cute," he finally replies. "I might be putting a kid on ECMO tonight," he continues. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Like a heart-lung machine.

I pause.

"I feel like you're trying to one-up my Aikane Neck Pillow."
