Amped Up

It's where kids should be. I've said it since Chaia's first week in the PICU.

They don't belong in hospital beds, with their arms restrained, tubes down their throat and sedation keeping them 'comfortable'.

They shouldn't have doctors and nurses parading in and out of their room poking and prodding, sticking and stabbing.

That's not where kids belong.

Kids belong at the zoo. Not permanently mind you...although some might thrive there...But kids should go to the zoo. They should see penguins waddling and monkeys swinging and kangaroos bouncing.

So, this Saturday, while we're in Columbus, that's exactly what we're going to do. In 30 degree weather...with a kid who won't remember a moment of it...we're going to the zoo.

This has been a long time coming for the Thompson Trio.

And I can't wait.
