Follow Through

Care of the broken baby required the purchase of a circular band with Velcro straps dangling in a kind of support matrix. We strapped the broken baby in and it was held apart from itself, open to the situation, which more often than not was food-related or sleep-related. Its head was very delicate and uncomfortable to the touch, so we made loving contact from a distance using retractable metal probes. We touched the baby along its ears and swollen eyes and little hands and feet. Responding to these touches, it was at its most baby-like. It cooed, attempted wriggling. We recorded the sounds for use in a progress report. We filed them under “pertinent.”
