To break up the day I asked the Kids Crew to send up a volunteer to do a craft with Erin. The volunteer was so good. They laughed and danced together. They made cute pictures with foam stickers and colored them with crayons. They played with streamers taped on a ruler. It was so nice to have someone else here entertaining Erin.
After the volunteer left our friend Cris came by for a visit. Cris was John's roommate when we were engaged and he's been a good friend ever since. He just works right here at the hospital so he often stops by at the end of his day to play with Erin. He is one of her favorite playmates. When he came to the door she yelled "hi Cris!" She was very excited to see him. They tossed a ball, did some silly things with her bunny, and then Erin painted Cris' fingernails (sort of - he was smart enough to put on a surgical glove first). See picture above of Erin painting Cris' fingernails. I didn't fare so well with the fingernail polish. I have it up and down my left hand.
I hope that Erin sleeps well tonight. We could use a full night's sleep so that we can have a better day tomorrow.
