Well today I had to take DS in for a blood transfusion. What do I turn around and find sitting on my cell phone, a teeny tiny hippo.
As you can see he is very sweet. He has the most adorable little tail I've ever seen.
He was very curious about all the medical equipment there. He tried to have his blood pressure taken. We just couldn't find a cuff small enough for him.
One of the kind nurses told him that if he wanted to play with DS then he needed to keep his hands clean. So off he went to get them all clean.
He sure is one adventurous hippo. I almost had a heart atack when I saw him up here.
After that I told him he needed to stick to helping DS or he would have to leave. So like any good hippo would do he went off to help. He learnt all about the IV pump.
He got so good at it, the nurses asked if he would keep an eye on it while DS got his blood.
When it was time to go, he tried to get the coats out of the locker for us. He soon found that he was just too little to open the door.
Since he was just a helpful hippo I though it would be best to bring him home. I did let him know that since he was such an adventurous hippo I would have to find him a new loving home. So tomorrow he will be moving in with a dear friend of mine so I can still visit him. We did take him out to dinner though to say thank you for all the hard work he did today.
I'm going to miss you Shippy, hope you like your new home!
