Traffic was horrible on the UAB campus. University Hospital, Children's Hospital, Cooper Green (mercy) hospital and UAB (college) are all right together so you can imagine traffic during rush hour!!
To me, Children's Hospital is a beautiful facility.
They have little red wagons in the lobby. The wagons are actually for the children. The parents can pull the children through the hospital. Those wagons come in handy for transporting dinner also.
Isn't the facility lovely? There were volunteers all over the place setting up a forest of Christmas trees that will be decorated by local companies and organizations. From the moment I drive up in front of the hospital to unload each time, my life is put in perspective - quickly!! Everywhere you look are parents who are exhausted, children who are sick and hurting, doctors and nurses hurrying to the next patient. I've followed caringbridge sites for several children - some who are doing well and some who are now with Jesus. I "see" them on each face.
I took a picture of these fish because I wanted Mark to see them. There is a huge school of fish swimming right through the lobby.
