Happy Halloween

Today is halloween.

You might think that this isn't a big deal in the hospital that is filled with kids that are sick.

You would be wrong.

This a place filled with kids, remember, and apparently halloween is the be-all and end-all of cool holidays that don't involved a big elf in a red suit. The nurses, doctors and everyone in between get dressed up for it, too.

So off we go to trick or treat in the hospital with all of the other kids. As long as a kid can travel and be near other kids, they get to go trick or treating. We have planned Ellie's day in advance so her time off the pumps is during trick or treat time (10 to noon) and we will take off to explore the hospital and show off Ellie's costume(s) to the nurses around the many floors, nurse's stations and departments. I think that there are something like 20 stops if we want.

Big fun. With candy.

Here is costume number one, our catch of the day. Surprisingly she is a little too long for this costume ,which is for 0-9 months, so there is another when she gets antsy.

Imagine that, a baby with short gut that is bigger than she should be. Love that fish oil.
