Elizabeth's big Suessical Welcome Home Party was yesterday. We had over 200 people show up plus 2 news stations here to cover her story. We had table set up from Tennessee Donor Services, the TN organ procurement center to help promote awareness as well. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. I loved planning the party with all the themed foods and decorations. I know some people probably think we are cray for having her around that many people but I think we did well with still controlling the environment. There were many signs hung reminding people to sanitize their hands, 2 large bottles of sanitizer on the sign in table and small bottles on all the tables. Plus Matt and I kept Elizabeth close to us and tried to limit anyone else holding her. Its all part of trying to not live in the bubble but still keep her as safe/healthy as possible.
I am reminded daily of how blessed and lucky we are to have her with us. She has fought so hard to get to this point and continues to amaze me. I am thankful everyday for the family who saved Elizabeth's life. We think of our donor family everyday, especially the precious angel who is watching over Elizabeth.
