Yesterday while taking the pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House, Pops remembered one of our funnier moments while Dave was in the hospital. One night Mike spent the night with Dave in the hospital, and Pops and I stayed at the RMH. The next morning it was pouring the rain and a sweet amish couple was going to walk to the hospital to see their baby in the NICU. Pops offered for them to ride the few blocks with us to avoid getting drenched. He even offered to pull the car up to the door of the RMH so me nor the amish couple would get wet. Pops is not known for his amazing driving and he hit the curb while trying to pick us up at the door. The sweet amish couple who are probably used to horse and buggy chose to walk that morning in the downpour than take their chances with Pops! Bahahhahaha!
We met a new friend today, Wes, who is in treatment for neuroblastoma. He is so gorgeous:)
Our last stop during the tour was a well bear clinic. David loved all the activities they had today, but this one was my favorite. Each child got a bear and got to name it (David named his Lebron) and then visit each station to give the bear a checkup. It was so very sweet!
We were so honored to be on hand today for the festivities for the opening of this gorgeous new facility. We have said all along that we knew we were getting top notch care, but now we will get this wonderful care in an amazing setting. Well done UVA!
