Breaking Out of the Hospital & an Address for Ronald McDonald House

Aubree got discharged from the hospital
mid-day today, and we are so happy to be out of the hospital for a few days. We are settling in at the Ronald McDonald House. Derrick's parents had everything extra clean in preparation for Aubree and even had a Christmas tree set up. It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas since the temperature has dropped here in Philly. It is also quite windy!

Before we were discharged, Aubree got pictures with some of the great people who have helped us at CHOP. The picture with the ladies are "the play ladies," or child life specialist and play coordinator who were so sweet to have fun activities for Aubree. The younger doctor is Dr. Shah (pronounced like our last name) who was Aubree's resident doctor the while time she was inpatient. He was always so patient and great to answer all of our questions. The other picture is Aubree with Dr. Mayer, the pulmonologist. We have genuinely been so impressed with his level of expertise and care for Aubree. He came by to see her everyday to check on her and answer any questions we had, even though he was not the hospitalist the last two weeks.

Also, several people have asked for an address for us while we are here. Here is our address:
Ronald McDonald House
Attn.: Derrick Shaw
Room 16
3925 Chestnut Street,
Philadelphia, PA 19104
