Tonight I took my youngest daughter to see her friend in the hospital.  Her friend has been in an out of the hospital for over six year now.  She is such a wonderful kid, and her spirit is amazing.  We tease her that she is like a fifth child to us.  (Actually, that is up to debate because another friend of my sons says he is the fifth child and she is the sixth…who’s counting!?)  Before we went to see her, we stopped off and picked up a cute bunny for her and some chocolate.  When we walked in, we were greeted with the good news that she might get to go home.  Later, she got the best news of all – she could go home!  We waited until her discharge papers were done and rolled her down the hallway in her wheelchair and out the door.  Right now, I bet she is one happy kid to be back at home.  For us, it was nice to be able to be there her.  I hope and pray she doesn’t have to return to the hospital any time soon.  Feel better!



  1. Glad she’s feeling better and your daughter is someone to lift her spirits.

  2. There is something that is extra heartbreaking when a child is ill, especially chronically. I hope she gets better and stays better. Every child deserves that. You are so kind to be there and to stay to celebrate her homecoming. I’m sure that made it even more special. And it is Easter weekend. God is good.
