…he’s leaving tomorrow.
The plans are finalized and Benjamin’s entourage will be picking him up at 11:15. Then it’s a short ambulance ride to the local airport, a very short flight on an air-ambulance jet, and then hopefully a quick ambulance ride over the GWB will bring Amy and Benjamin to Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. Joe will be driving back like a commoner with a car filled with dirty laundry and frozen milk (Thanks Carol! (for the milk, not the laundry)).
We’re glad to be going home but we’ll miss all the people we’ve met here in Lancaster. The nurses, doctors and staff have been so amazing here and we will definitely miss everyone including Elsie, Beth, Diane(s), Karen(s), Kym, Lauren, Charity, Brenda, Dianna, Rita, Cindy, Sandy, Dr Lorah, Dr Nad, Dr Secrest, Dr Kaur, Dr Triano, Dr M, Dr Bayliss, Maria, Linda, Pam, Adam, Steve, Stacey, Joel, Christine, Jessy, Carol, Georgia, and so many others! We’ll keep the other NICU kids in our thoughts especially Mason and Caden, Robert, Lydia, Eli and Rick. And thanks so much to the local support we got from Carol and her family, Hope and her boys, Kristin, Kim, Andrew and Cristy, and Laurie and Nick. We’ll especially miss getting to see Courtney, Taylor and Tristen- we’ll definitely be back! Everyone helped make being so far away from home so much easier. We probably missed a lot of names – so please forgive us.
We never did get a shoo-fly pie but we did get our 10th and free coffee from the cafeteria and Amy is now mayor of the Women and Babies Hospital on foursquare – so we have that going for us.
Expect a ton of photos from the plane and transport and of the new digs.
New York Folks – can’t wait to see you all.
Cayman – clean up the apartment before we get home.
