Vera Pulls Out Mickey Button

I should have seen it coming.

I had not changed Vera's balloon water in a few months.

I am supposed to check monthly to make sure it is at 6ml.

She pulls it out. I stare at the plump shiny balloon, resisting a sudden urge to squeeze it. Hold on, you're putting it back into her tummy.

I syringed out the water inside - only 3ml. No wonder she could yank it out.

I stuff it back into the tummy and pumped up the balloon to 6ml.


I better get a spare button in hand. Who knows when I will be faced with a burst balloon!

*fingers crossed*
