St. Agatha’s - St. James’ Church was beautiful for mass this morning, as always. After lunch, Christi wanted to take Shayne to Franklin Institute to “show Daddy the giant heart” so we again put our COSI membership to good use and enjoyed the afternoon at the science center after a long, cold walk there. Christi’s stomach was queasy so instead of taking a cab back as we had planned we walked back to the Ronald House – close to two uphill miles with the strong wind blowing. We could only laugh about the good work out we were getting and wondered how Aunt Marty was doing………..
Today was the Arnold “Pump and Run” event in Columbus which Marty and Shayne were both registered to compete in. Aunt Marty did a great job and we’re very proud of her!!! (Because Shayne wasn’t there Jeff registered for Shayne and ran a bit with Shayne’s number on it which made us laugh here in Philadelphia today!)
So far, no fever and Christi continues to feel very well. I expect that she will need a platelet transfusion tomorrow and with the look of her pale lips, it won’t surprise me if she needs a blood transfusion too. We’ve thoroughly been blessed with Shayne’s presence this weekend and I’m certain we’ll both be very sad when he needs to leave us tomorrow. (He'll update the blog with pics when he get home and gets a chance. We're unable to add them here at the Ronald House.)
