Patience Is...

..Standing at your child's bedside, staring at the monitors.
..Carefully maneuvering chest tubes and wires just to touch their skin.
..Whispering in their ear how brave and strong they are.
..Not being able to hold your baby for weeks on end.
..Holding your breath on extubation day, so hopeful that it will be tolerated.
..Waiting, and waiting, and waiting for her to say something.  Anything.  And then, when she does, it's...

...wait for it...

...wait for it.. (see, I am teaching you patience too!)

I could be offended, but then again, who can compete with this guy?
