A Fond Farewell

While it will never be a place we want to return (but probably will due to a fever in the near future), the BMT floor of St. Jude has been a wonderful place.  It's amazing how "at home" we have felt over the past 4 months.  The nursing staff is bar none (along with our family at LeBonheur) and the support staff was always so accomoating.  Child Life, volunteers, nursing assistants....everyone played a crucial role in making our journey so much easier.  I won't wax on any further because I'm quite sure we will have one more opportunity to see our "family." 

Here are three videos I took yesterday.  Just a tiny glimpse into our day.  As always, I am behind the camera.  My best friend Amanda and Erik are taking care of Lucy.

  3. Kate- I can't remember how I found your blog, but I have been following Lucy's story and have been praying for her. I was in the hospital at age 5 and know what a scary thing it can be. My situation was not near as bad as Lucy's, but I know that she will come through this like a champion. 5 year olds have a special place in my heart (I teach Kindergarten) and I know God is watching over Lucy and protecting her. Praying for no fevers!! much love and prayer, Clare from Nashville, TN

  5. I teared up seeing Lucy leave the hospital...happy tears of course! I have a little boy the same age and we have been praying for Lucy for months. We will continue to pray God will heal her and keep her healthy. Go Lucy GO!

  6. I am a college student in Minnesota. I have family in your area who told me about the blog. I just wanted to let you know that I read the blog EVERY day. Today I am studying at a local coffee shop, and watched the videos, and started tearing up, such an exciting moment for you all.. I cannot imagine what you have been through, and hope there is nothing but blue skies in your future. I am cheering little lucy on everyday! she is so lucky to have such a dedicated mother and family.
