Our Ronald McDonald house room came through finally yesterday and I was tearing up when they took us on the tour. Meals are provided, so whenever we are not at the hospital, we have a home-cooked meal available. This will be one less financial strain and I'm glad the kids will be able to eat healthy and not have to grab fast food like we've been doing the past 2 weeks. The girls are going to be so happy and things will be so much more normal for them... a place to color and do crafts, a big playroom, library, movies to watch... I was so worried about having to pack everything under the sun for them and its all right there.
Speaking of which, it costs the Ronald McDonald House almost $100 a day to support a family like ours, and it is truly a miracle for families in our situation. Honestly, I don't know what we would do if we didn't have that available to us, since we can't afford a hotel. Please consider making a donation on our behalf to this wonderful, wonderful organization. Thank you to a good friend Kaylan Laird for sharing the following directions on how to donate:
