Costco Appreciation Day at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center

Olivia was invited to the medical center to talk in front of the CT Costco employees today. They had a birthday party, celebrating the Medical Center’s Sweet 16. Olivia did a great job sharing her story to the 10 Costco employees. We then had the pleasure of a tour of the PICU (holy moly, MEMORIES). I was quite uncomfortable to be honest, because it brought EVERYTHING BACK for me. Olivia was most fascinated by the family suites, which she had never seen before ;).

I mentioned to the PICU staff that Olivia had stayed with them 3 times, and they were THRILLED to find out she was a patient of Dr Mello’s.

Interesting tidbit about Connecticut Children’s – they filter the air 4 times as often as a “regular” hospital. And that’s why it never smells “like a hospital”.

We stopped in to see Felice Heller (LOVE HER). It was so great to be able to visit under good circumstances.
