Ya Know...

...isn't it just like God to give you a day filled with encouragement and good news after having a rotten day?

Yesterday was pretty rough.  We'll just leave it at that, because that's not what this post is about.  This is about today being a pretty fabulous day.

*  Abby was awake for most of my visit and interacted with me quite a bit.  While her test results aren't back yet, she's feeling much better and they don't think that she has the virus they tested.  (Yes, we're still on contact precautions--but I'm determined to go in with street clothes on Christmas!!)

*  Caleb was well-behaved and really enjoyed his medical play time with Megan.  She gave him an entire bag full of medical supplies to keep!

*  Old friends of ours from high school, Keba and Aaron, came to visit us today while they're here from Seattle.  It was great catching up with them!

*  I was able to find a baby doll for Caleb and gave her a trach and g-tube just as he requested.

*  Thanks to the wonderful Baltimore Police, we ended the night with a bag full of all kinds of toys.

*  I met a wonderful, encouraging man named Pete who turned his own sorrow into a beautiful way to give to others.  His mom was killed during a robbery and he organizes the police toy drive every year in her honor.

*  There are some wonderful families here at RMH right now that I have really enjoyed getting to know.  Being the second most veteran family here at this point, we've seen a lot of families come and go.  The group that is here right now is pretty great! 

I am incredibly touched by the police donations we had tonight.  It deserves a post all of its own, but I'm too sleepy to write it tonight.  Be on the look out for it though, because it's a good one!  ;)
