Father's Day Weekend

Emma is still at CHOC. We thought she was coming home yesterday, but she is still having some issues of throwing up. There is talk again of a fundo, but we really do not want it. At this point we are unsure of when she will get to come home again. Over the weekend, our friends at CHOC not only took care of Emma, but also Alissa and I. Our angel Carol in particular insisted that we spend some time together away from the hospital. We were able to go to the movies and lunch without having to worry if Emma was going to be OK. It was very much needed to have a bit of normalcy. On Father's Day, we went to WCC for a pancake breakfast, classic car show, and to see former SF 49er Wendell Tyler speak. Afterwards, we had lunch over at my parent's house. When we finally arrived at CHOC, Emma (with the help of Jen and others) had made me a small scrapbook and framed photo gallery for my desk at work. It was very special. CHOC continues to be more like a family than a hospital. For that, we are extremely grateful.

It was good to see you guys in passing on Sunday at WCC! Our prayers are with you both and little Emma and we hope she gets to come home SOON! How wonderful of the staff at CHOC to make that album for you! What a treat!
