When I put it out here on this blog and on Facebook that we were going to be going to the HOT Unit on Thanksgiving to bring games and craft kits, I never quite imagined the outpouring from all of you.
Then again, I should know better, after how many pictures Sam received!
It was such a joy to pack up all the awesome games and toys and kits....
Every time we come into the hospital, we have to get a badge. Parent & grandparent badges are orange, patients (Sam) don't get badges. Siblings and other visitors get yellow badges.
Sam and David pulled the wagon-load (we had three large bags full, plus a few hand-carries)
So I thank you for enabling us to have this moment of return, a moment that felt both strange and wonderful....and to know that there are still so many children and families who are in those rooms....may healing come for all of them.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
