Along those same lines, the crabs arrived today! I left a message for the Director of Child Life at the hospital and I hope we can work with him to take those up next week! Thanks again to EVERYONE who donated to help this happen. It means a lot to share Eli's favorite toy with other babies! (and as much as Bandit is annoying me lately, we will keep him here at home I guess.) :o

A few updates....
If you look at the picture above, you'll see a gold crown with Eli's name on it. It was purchased by a lovely lady named Pam who found my blog from a post I made on a scrapbook message board. She has been in contact with me several times and is such a sweetheart. She is saving pop tabs for us to help with our support of Ronald McDonald House. I have never met her, but she was touched enough by Eli's story to get involved. That is the kind of effort it will take to not only make the world a better place, but to fight against the horrible disease that is taking our innocent babies away from us. She shared a quote from Mother Teresa in her last email to me, and it is very fitting with what we are all doing... "We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love."
