Her Ist outing out of ICU since Trachy

3/6/08 Today is the beginning of gold week. A major fundraising event for the hospital. All this week we will be having lots of celebrities come to to the hospital to meet all the sick kiddies. It really puts a smile on all the kids faces, even the parents. Today we had visits from HI 5, sponge bob square pants and Brian McFadden. I was lucky enough to have a photo with him. He was really nice. As they didnt come in to ICU, they were unable to meet our brave little girl. At about 2pm i got some great news. They said Skyla was able to go for a walk in her pram. I nearly cried. Her only time in a pram was for about 10min on xmas day and thats been it, and she was asleep for that. I was so excited. As i didnt have my pram at hospital, we used the ICUs pram and off we went. We first went around ICU twice then we were allowed to leave ICU for the first time in a long time. She was wide awake and looking around. She was loving it. Even though we only ventured out down the corridor, it was great just being outside the ICU. I pushed Skyla and the nurse had to push the ventilator next to her. Its hard work but so worth it. We even bumped into sponge bob. Skyla wasnt interested in him one little bit, but oh well. We sure did have fun.

Cool! That's great that she got to get out and about for a little while. You're right, she does not look the least bit impressed with SpongeBob :-)
