Looks like Lego. Designed with input by kids of all ages who were former patients of its predecessor.<br><br>
I spent the night with the boy, slept on this bed/bench beneath his window. He came out of surgery at about 8 last night. 2 blebs. Look it up. Weird. They took a piece (small) of his lung out and stapled / glued / meshed it back together. He's got an epidural to help with the pain of the tube they have stuck in him, and is on morphine. Still in a good deal of pain, but they're managing it.<br><br>
Beautiful building, beautiful staff.. "Hi, I'm Mary", said the surgeon. Everyone is first name basis, everyone is gentle with the kids.<br><br>
Not much sleep, but even meeting moms and dads in the hallway at 3 has been an experience I'll never forget.

Thanks for the update, I'm glad things are going well so far. I hope that boybarian #2 doesn't end up having the same problem.

He's doing much better. I left at about 10 this morning and came back with his brother about 2 and in those 4 hours they'd adjusted the meds (morphine down, epidural up), and he's actually moving around a bit.<br><br>
Neat place. Really. Kids can have their pets visit a couple of times a week in a special room for the purpose. I mean, who wouldn't miss their dog or cat? Right?<br><br>
Want a snack? There's popcorn there for popping if you're feeling up for it and your doc says you can. Oh, and your mom made a dessert for you...<br><br>
Neat place, but I'm bushed. I'm off for bed.<br><br>
I had to feed him today (breakfast) because his left arm isn't or wasn't working all that well and he couldn't sit up straight at the time. I made airplane noises and big circles and said "This one is for Momma..." to some rather nasty glares. Hey... 15 years goes by real fast.
