Live with JOY!


Thursday, December 22, 2011

I went to see my new friend Lynda and had a great time celebrating her birthday early. I got more than I planned for...she ended up being released that day, so we spent almost 10 hours together! She needs a new heart. She has an external machine that makes her heart beat that she has to drag everywhere with her. She had such joy, even facing an uncertain future. I painted faces and we walked around the floor which had signs that said "Congratulations, you just walked 10 feet!" The nurses surprised her with presents and all sang Happy Birthday before we left. She was overjoyed. We enjoyed a meal together at Portillo's before I drove them back to their home.

Sadly, she is back in the hospital, on a vent. She was able to enjoy her real birthday at home, then went back to the hospital the next day.

Honestly, none of us know how long we have on this earth. So live with JOY!

Have a great day.

Suzanne
