Corey had a good day. She was awake and alert when we arrived tonight. She had a surprise visitor, her older sister Caitlin came to play! It was such a nice day we took Corey out to the goose pond to get some fresh air and give Caitlin a tour of the rehab.
The geese flew south so we headed north to the 2nd floor to hang out in Corey’s room. Caitlin and I then started to explore our artistic talents on Corey’s casts and Caitlin decided she should keep her day job. There is definitely a reason she is majoring in photography!
The nursing staff was delighted to meet Corey’s sister. We were the party room. All the nurses on the floor wanted to come in to visit even though they don’t have Corey as their patient! If you know Caitlin, this is no surprise. She is very entertaining!
We had a great time laughing and telling stories. Corey was alert and did not stop staring at Caitlin. It was wonderful to see because I just know Corey recognized her big sister!
We’re sure that Corey must have been exhausted but wouldn’t close those big blue eyes as long as Caitlin was there. We kissed her good night and tucked her in. Caitlin is staying with me tonight in my little dorm room. I’m sure I won’t be getting much sleep. We have a habit of staying up chatting, laughing and gossiping!
It was a good night for all of us! xoxo
