Emilia and Mayzie have always had a special bond. When Emilia came home from the hospital , Mayzie could sense right away something was different. She started licking Emilia's leg and foot trying to bring her some relief from the pain. She stays by her side all day, sleeps next to her bed and even follows her into the bathroom. She is an amazing dog, Amazing Mayzie.
This past weekend we participated in the Save A Limb Ride/Walk for Sinai Hospital and Mayzie proudly joined Emilia. The 1 mile walk was dedicated in memory of Teresa.
The love and support that the Doctors and Nurses from Sinai Hospital and especially Marilyn (the patient liaison ) showed to our family while Teresa was at CHOP was truly touching. Marilyn came to the house and brought gifts for the girls and a special card signed by everyone at the hospital. During this very difficult time , it made the girls feel really loved.
We felt very honored when Marilyn asked if they could dedicate the race in Teresa's memory.
Teresa had such fun at the event last year. If felt very odd to be there this year without her.
We have been so blessed to have so many loving , caring people in our life.
