Thanks Dave! :)


Last night as my mom ran me home due to some misplaced keys and this is what she saw when she returned to the hospital. Dave, Charlie's nurse, was rocking him in the chair trying to calm him down. It was so sweet and loving. This is just one example of how great Dave and the other staff is here at PCMC. While we were in the PICU during the first two weeks of this experience I saw a nurse on night shift put a little girls hair in sponge curlers because she knew her mom like her hair curly. They take the time to do the little things that really mean the most.

Holy Cow, Shani... those were the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen- and the accompaning blogs have left me with tears running down my cheeks. I have not cried for awhile and it feels good.

Thanks to you for that very thoughtful post.

I am glad Charlie has such a wonderful staff taking care of him. I, too, believe that he will wake up and be "Charlie".

You are very lucky to have the people around you that you do... and I am so pleased to know you and hear about all this. It is very inspiring.

Love, Jill B

I'm sure everyone is drawn to Charlie. Anyone who cares for him must be able to feel of his spirit and the love that everyone has for him. The staff sounds incredible. I'm glad they care so much about all of their patients. I know G'ma Cheryl is anxious to get to have her "Charlie Fix". I pray for a calm night!
