Back from Vacation!

Hannah and I have been on vacation for 2 weeks and we're glad to be home. And, as always, we have lots to talk about especially in the way of the Remembering Emma Grace NICU project.

I was able to meet up with a friend of mine, Kristine, and her twins. We had a great time, but Chuck E' Cheeses (or ever how you spell that) was sooo crowded. Anyway, she worked the night before we met to get these isolette shirts made. As usual, she goes above and beyond. She said she was thinking "I've got to get these finished." Thanks Kristine for working so hard to make a difference!

I also was able to talk via the phone to Sue, the sweet lady back home that crochetted all the caps. She's really taking this project under her wing and is going to volunteer through I wish her and her circle of friends Happy Crochetting!!!!

When we returned home last night, I had 2 packages waiting. The first is from an internet friend Kadie. She sent 5 disposable cameras and 4 journals. We kept a disposable camera at Emma's isolette so that the NICU nurses could get some "surprise" photos for us. The journals are a great idea, too. I wish we had done that. I always got back to the Ronald McDonald House trying to remember stats and things to scratch down. If I had kept a journal by Emma's isolette I could have spent time with her and recording our thoughts. Thanks again, Kadie!!!
