You know you're a heart mom...



…if blue popsicles freak you out.

 ...when you can explain the human heart in more medically-termed detail than a step-down nurse can. 

… when you know what a step-down nurse is.

…when you can reconnect the pulse-ox monitor on your child without having to wait for the nurse to do it. 

…when you know which unit at the hospital has the good coffee (hint: it’s not in the cafeteria).

…when you get a knot in your stomach when someone describes your child as an “angel.” 

…when your co-workers (who have been employed longer than you) ask for help understanding company insurance benefits. 

…when you learn that doctor’s orders are really just recommendations.
