not as planned


I can still picture it - that unexpected, middle of the night trip to the hospital when I was a small child visiting my grandmother. The emotional trauma, the physical suffering, the medication I did not want. And oh, the tears. Internally I traveled back in time yesterday as one of our young guests had to make an unexpected visit to the hospital. All is well now, after a very long day for the family. I hope when she's older and looks back on this she remembers the time with friends and riding the ferry alongside her memory of physical pain, canceled plans and lost playtime.

I'm so sorry to read this, and relieved to read that she's well now. She'll probably remember the pain and the scary trip, but also all the love she received from you all.
