And love she is getting. Her family and friends have taken turns by her side today, kissing her feet in their little ruffled socks and stroking any patch of exposed skin that is not hooked up to tubes or wires. Amanda went to school this morning and came this afternoon to visit with Julia. She brought her good friend Oliver with her, and Julia's buddy Finn came in too. Later Julia's cousins Connor and Molly came to see her also. All of the kids did so well, even though it is hard to see their Julia in such a scary setting.
We don't know what the next few days will bring, but we do know that Julia is embraced in the incredible warmth, love and light of her family and her community.
