|Jacob's first "outing" to see the Christmas Tree 3 floors down!|
Jacob was also lucky enough to have the Murphy family come and visit with him. We met the Murphys (whose eldest son is being treated at Seattle Children's) at Ronald McDonald House. Strangely enough they are from Missoula, Montana, Andy's hometown. Their son was diagnosed with cancer the very same day Jacob was diagnosed with CDH. Over the last two months and many dinners together at RMH, we have become special friends. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the Murphys rocked and fed Jacob. It was such a relief to us to know Jacob was being given some extra attention while we were away. It made us breathe a little easier and able to focus on Landon and Hazel who are very eager for Mommy's and Daddy's attention. It was hard to be away, but we greatly enjoyed spending Christmas at home with our other two "babies".
