A Visit to Mercy Heart Center

After horseback riding today we went for a little drive on the highway. Then my mom pulled into a parking deck... soon as I got out of the car I realized we were at the Mercy Hospital. "Mom..." I moaned. "Why are we here?" She said, "Don't worry Sarah, we are not here for you." Phew....
...So we walk in and went straight up to the CCU in the Heart Center. We walked to room 5 and guess who is sitting there?

My big brother, TJ. Haaaa what is he doing here?

Then I see my Grandma sitting up in her chair. She looked really good today. Yesterday morning she got a pacemaker. It is going to help her heart.

So we stayed for a little visit. I told her all about riding Ridge today. It seems a little weird for me to be visiting someone in the hospital. I am usually the one in the goofy gown with the wires coming out of my sleeves. I am happy I can visit with Grandma though. It made her pretty happy.

We took a picture of TJ and Grandpa before we left. Haaa grandpa is pretending TJ is taller than he is. He really isn't because Grandpa is 6'4" and TJ is only 6 feet. But that is still a lot taller than me.

One hug for me before it is time to leave. I needed a nap because it was really hot at horse riding today. Get Well Grandma. I Love You.
