To our dearest friends and family,
We Brooke and Heidi have finally had a moment tonight to take a breath and look back over this last week that has so ever changed our lives.
First and foremost, Elizabeth (Aka Pinkalicious) is doing unbelievably well. We have never been more proud of anything. Despite the ‘yucky’ medicine (which if you have been lucky enough to witness this hour of whooshing and spitting everyday) she does not complain. The good news is Elizabeth learned to swallow a pill today. She has been practicing really hard and finally got it today with a cherry tic tac. We celebrated and think the entire 7th floor heard. Elizabeth has been busy making art projects and playing UNO. The nurses say that her room is one-of-a-kind! She’s got rhinestones on all the doors, a pink and purple lava lamp, flowing balloons, posters and cards galore. Fuzzy pillows and fuzzy flip flops, an entire counter and closet full if books, crafts and activities. The coziest stuff animals surround her and not to mention her frilly hair and nail accesories and jewelry.
Tomorrow it is possible we will get to go home. We are excited and terrified at the same time.
We are so increadibly blessed to have each and everyone of you in our lives. We would not have gotten through the last week without you. The words you have wrote, the prayers you have prayed, the gifts you have sent, the meals you have prepared, the parties you have plannned, the errands and chores you have done have truly touched our hearts in ways you could not imagine. This lifts us up many times a day. We so graciously thank you for each and everything big and small. We love you all dearly. Please continue your prayers as Elizabeth with all our support conquers this.
With much Love,
