I am beginning this update for the third time after POOF!

Lock up and restart. Again! Okay, already. I'll save it! :-|

Julia is now a year older and a Christmas wiser. We awoke on Christmas morning to a wonderful surprise right here in the hospital room. Not only had Santa's elves already been here during our slumber to leave a wonderful stocking filled with goodies at the foot of our bed, but the grand man himself was right outside of our door with another bag of goodies for all the kids on the floor. Ho ho HO! A number of families who had been through this program in the past both sent and brought gifts and food to share with those of us here now. The generosity of all the families and groups who so thoughtfully shared their time with all the kids on the unit was overwhelming. The best gift of all was having and hugging a playful Julia all day long.
