Not Much Going On Today

A little on the slow side today. Not much happening. Bailey's having a good time learning the blues on the keyboard. Dr. T and Dr. Gujohnson (or something like that) popped in and noticed how long Bailey's toes are. Dr. Gujohnson (who has probably said 10 words to us the whole time we've been here - he's really really nice, just quiet and serious) made a joke! He told Bailey that if she stood on her tippy toes she'd be 6 feet tall. We had a good time over that.

We've had 3 different doctors pop in this evening and ask if Bailey's had the chicken pox. Finally, we asked what's up, and apparently one of the resident doctors in cardiology was diagnosed with chicken pox today and they're going room-to-room questioning the patients as to whether or not their children have had the chicken pox and whether or not they've been innoculated. I think they've got a small mess on their hands. But they're all relieved that Bailey has had them before.

Bailey was working on a science lab project (eliptical orbits) and Dr. T said, "Oh, if you can get some . . . [and he realed off a few chemical names] . . . I can show you how to make a little bomb. It's really cool. You can scare the night nurses." I think maybe we've been here too long. Haha!!

Well, that's pretty much it for today. See? I told you it was slow. I'll talk to you tomorrow!

They'd better hurry up and find a heart....I think Dr. T needs a vacation. :) I'm hoping to bring the boys up this weekend if Cody can stop sniffling. Maybe we can make him wear a mask anyway. We'll see. Anyway, they miss you and can't wait to see you. I told them how good you look. I also wanted to let you know that New Hope Community Church is praying for you all. They want to hear Bailey play the violin again since they missed her at Christmas.

Love you lots, Aunt Vickie.

Hey guys! I've been missing you!! I've been traveling a bunch, and then have not been able to post a comment from home OR work for the past several tries... got lucky this time. I've been trying to show you, Bailey, that I'm on the cutting edge of high tech medicine!! Hope you can access this news breif: ... The heart benefits of regularly scheduled (ha) laughter is making the news... I'm telling you, stick with me....
I've been reading your updates every day. Have been to Omaha, Orlando, and Philadelphia all in the past 2 1/2 weeks, and gave those EKG workshops at a conference in Indy Sunday that I talked to you about a couple of weeks ago. I made the clay heart model- you should see it..... or maybe not! I'm not as crafty as you are!
Love you and miss you. Glad you are doing great. You guys are teh greatest!!
love ya.
(PS Tyler is in Panama City on Spring Break with some friends - a stretch in my comfort zone! Cortney's busy with softball (made the varsity team again) and club volleyball - keeps us busy every weekend!)

Hi Bailey and Angie and all the rest!

So glad to hear that Bailey can get top-notch medical treatment AND the skills to make a mini-bomb all under one roof!

I'm hoping to get up there and see you as soon as possible.

Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!

Love you all much!

Hi girls,

You call learning how to make a mini bomb "a slow day" should live with me! You'd be bored out of your skull before 10 minutes was up! You know this sight is probably gonna be visited by the FBI now with all of us talking about bombs...; )

Dr. T is funny. You should think about writing a children's book for the kids at'd get a lot of material out of Dr. T!!

Love you guys. Call me before tomorrow if you want anything. We'll be up around 6:30 with your restaurant food, Ang.

Love you both!

Hey, who needs public school--you're getting real-world education in there. I'm glad things are going so well. Hopefully I can come up to see you later in the week. Well, Josie got her stage debut lastnight--you would have cracked up Bailey. She went with me and Erica to our church lastnight for the Secret Keeper Girl Tour. They needed some volunteers from the audience for a play, and they asked all the girls with birthdays in September to come up on stage. Josie was very excited (but she missed intermission and she really needed to go to the restroom--but it worked out fine--ha ha). Some of the girls were scientists and some were monkeys. Josie was the "head honcho brown monkey" (and yes, that's what they called her on stage). She made monkey noises, beat up people (pretend of course), and she was pounded on too. Josie has a CD about the Secret Keeper Girls that you can listen to and a book for your mom about it. I wish you could have been there seeing her act like a monkey; of course, some may say that's not much of a stretch--ha ha. We miss you so much and can hardly wait for that new healthy heart to arrive. Keep up the good work, and keep having all that fun with your music.

Lots of Love!!

Hi Bailey and Angie! I just returned from a little trip to Florida for a visit with my parents and I kept tabs on you from there too! I was walking around Seaside thinking about how much I wished you and your family could be there too. I have been to there so many times and that silly Modica Market grocery store still cracks me up! I'm waiting for the day that I decide to get the courage to shimmy up one of those ladders to the top shelf! ha I just want to be able to say that I did it! I probably fall and break my neck so I better keep my paws on the floor.

You two continue to amaze me with your strength, courage and hope. YOu are loved so much! That Dr. T sounds hysterical and I'm so glad that you are getting such good care. I'll try to stop by sometime later this week. I need some entertainment!

Hey ready for that egg salad sandwich? I'll bring that and some of my Fat Rascal cookies for you guys too.

much love to you...Mary Ann

Hey Bailey - Tell Dr. T. I read his quotes about the Berlin Heart in a newsbrief sent out by the American College of Cardiology - it was linked to ABC News. Tell him we are all very impressed. Did you know there have only been 12 Berlin Hearts implanted in the US ever? and that 3 of them have been at Riley - see there... you are in GREAT hands! (I think maybe you knew that already). He's plugging away trying to get the device approved without waiting for other ones coming up through the ranks that don't have as much experience under their belts. ... anyway.... thought that was neat.
love you
