Alice was more than happy to visit the hospital...three days in a row. She loves it.
Each time I pass the Christmas tree in the hospital lobby I've noticed different patients observing it. It makes me so happy when I see children in a hospital gown noticing all the familiar items on the tree...as these items don't look frightening anymore but sparkly. It was worth it...all so worth it!
Tonight my friend Jill came to visit with her daughter Emily (who has SCID). We could have talked for days--it was awesome talking about all the things we have in common. There is something about talking with others who have been in your shoes...it's like therapy :) Thanks Jill! After a couple hours I went to inform Emily that her mother needed to leave...Natalie and Emily were having a great time. It made me so happy to see Natalie happy. The two girls have so much in common, they instantly became friends.
Great News....My phone was found...and in working order! I like to think that the snow was just preserving it. :) I feel like I have my right arm back now. It's sad how dependent we become to our phones.
Thank you for your continued love and prayers...It's wonderful!!
