Julia had some big smiles today--look at this gorgeous, radiant girl! She had a great day spending time with both her Grammie and her Nona. Grammie reports:
With lots of company for Julia, Carrie, Glen and Amanda were able to be together away from the hospital, and had a much-needed and appreciated excursion to a playground where Amanda found some other kids to play with and had a great time on her new scooter.
As Grammie mentioned, Julia's transfer to CHO (Children's Hospital Oakland) has now been pushed back to Sunday, purely for logistical reasons. It's frustrating to have further delays, but she will continue to get PT and OT while at Kaiser, and will be able to move right into services at CHO on Monday if all goes according to plan. In the meantime, Carrie, Glen and the rest of the family are keeping Julia busy with therapy games, stories, massages and of course lots of love and cuddles.
Wishing everyone warmth on this cold evening,
P.S. For anyone who is interested in doing a meal for the Kings, there is now a Meal Train site to coordinate dinners: http://www.mealtrain.com/?id=m4u0ytvq32jt
P.P.S. And one more thing! The Kings will need to buy a minivan or some type of larger car for when Julia is able to come home. She will need a special car seat, which will not fit in their sedan. If anyone hears of a great deal or has a connection that might help them find the car they need at a reasonable price, please let them or me know.
