Happy Easter!

Carver is home and doing well. Tonight will be our first night with a continuous feed. This will allow us to double Carver's food/calorie intake.

While in the PICU a nice "Easter Bunny" stopped to deliver an Easter basket full of goodies for Carver. A group of people that got to know a little girl by the name of Kyrie Dawn Thome, a 16 month-old daughter of Jordan and Lacie Thome of Vally Center, Kansas, delivered the basket. Kyrie was diagnosed with a rare primitive neuroectodermal tumer January 2007. Kyrie was supposed to be in the Wesley PICU Easter 2007. The group got together to deliver some Easter goodies from the "Easter Bunny". They were going to deliver goodies to Kyrie and her friends that were stuck in the Hospital on Easter. When they arrived, they found out that Kyrie had already gone home with her parents and died the day before Easter. The group continues to deliver Easter goodies in Kyrie's name each Easter. To read more about Kyrie, you can visit her website at

Kinnick and Carver spent last Easter in the NICU - they were only a few days old. Kinnick had her PDA Ligation last Easter. Needless to say, this is a much happier Easter for our family. We are so lucky to have both Kinnick and Carver home this year for Easter. Thanks be to God!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Dear Carver's Mom,
You are very welcome for the Easter treats that "The Easter Bunny" & "Eggbert The Easter Egg" left for Carver on Good Friday. WE are very blessed with awesome friends, family, and co-workers who generously donate money and items so that we may deliver them to the children at Wesley Hospital during Christmas & Easter. We get the "fun" job of seeing the kids smiles...and receiving appreciative messages from the families...just like you! Thank YOU for taking the time to let us know that we brighten your and Carver's day...THAT is whey we do what we do. Happy Spring! luv, "Esater Bunny"
