Wendy's Christmas

The doctors had told us the day before that Wendy might be able to move from mid-care into a regular bed the next day. We happened to be going to the hospital for Rebecca's surgery, and would be on the same floor, in the same ward, and just down the hall from Wendy's potential new bed.

So, with Wendy’s Christmas presents filling up a red bag, we saw Rebecca off as she went into surgery. And then we waited, hoping to be informed of Wendy’s room-change soon.

Good news! She was doing well enough to be moved, the nurse said. So with her presents piled up in one corner, we went into her room to wait. She came in a few minutes later. She was a bit flustered at first, but as soon as she saw her presents she knew. Reaching out, she began to tear into them, loving everything that she found inside!

The craft activity was an especially welcome gift. She broke into it right away.

Didn't she do a great job?

We're so happy that we were able to bring a little bit of Christmas to Wendy in the hospital. She still has a ways to go with regards to her recovery, but so far it's been nothing but miraculous.

Wendy's Christmas wish was to "go home!" and it's ours too. Get well soon, Wendy. Everybody here misses you.
