Lovely View ~ But I Wish We Could Go Home

Isn't this a lovely view outside the window in our room ? Can you see the church steeple ? Can you see Mt. Rainier ? The mountain appears to be floating above the city. We can also see Puget Sound from here and the tops of the trees in nearby parks. But this is not a fancy hotel or resort. It all started...
...here at home on Cedar Pond. Yes, that is a Medic One vehicle in our driveway and two handsome and kind men transporting one of our grandchildren to the E.R.They let me ride with them and our grandchild. What an exciting ride, sirens and all.
Grandchild brought friends and was given 2 new friends. You can see Belle Bear who rode with us to the hospital also has to receive oxygen, but just like grandchild,
she is doing much better now.We've been here several days and are a little tired of staying in this lovely hospital even though it is all new, all truly beautiful, and even has room service ! We are wanting to go home now please.Pretty PLEASE ?
UPDATE : My grandchild and I are home . We cannot say enough good things about the hospital (Mary Bridge Children's Hospital ) and the staff and are very thankful for everything they did for us. Yes, they are very kind and supportive of family staying with those hospitalized, and there were numerous people I met there who are volunteers. Self-sacrificing volunteers who spend a great deal of time with patients and their families. I think I will be writing more about this later...but now I am needed by grandchild. Time for meds !

Thank you for visiting our blog. I'm so happy that your grandchild is feeling better. What a nice memory you have provided with the teacup and teapot. Very special!

Oh dear, Kathy - I'm so sorry to read that you've had an emergency involving a grandchild. Thank heavens for the emergency workers and all the benefits of big-city hospitals. I hope you and your grandchild get to go home soon and that all will be well on Cedar Pond.

Asthma again? I am so sorry to read this. Praying that you guys can return home soon. It is a lovely view but I know home will look a lot better.

Oh how scary for you all. I hope things are better very soon and pray for healing and comfort. I was just released from that same hospital two days ago...it is awfully pretty and new and the room service was amazing. Guess it was time to go home if I thought the food was good! Best wishes to you all.

Being in a hospital, even a beautiful one, is no way to have fun, for sure!
I'm praying whatever has caused your g'daughters health problems will be resolved and you can both head home.
Blessings-Kimberly

I'm glad you're home again. This reminded me of a couple years ago, my oldest son was 7, I had just had a miscarriage and he was taken to the ER...ended up having appendicitis! I stayed there for 4 days straight with him and his stuffed animals, and became exhausted due to the miscarriage and the stress and scariness of the operations (he ended up having 2 operations in 1)...it's so hard. So I'm glad you're home again. It's amazing what a few stuffed animals can do!

Kathy, I have been praying for you all. SO glad that your grandchild received such good care from the medical staff and TLC from her wonderful Grandmother!

Daisy said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that a trip to the ER was necessary, but I'm glad to hear your grandchild has been released and is doing better. Hospitals are not fun places, but we are so lucky to have them.
