Today we visited Beaumont for another Royal Tuck In and it was one of our best visits yet. We had two new volunteers with us this time, Federica and SWAT Officer Ray. They did a phenomenal job with the children. Thank you Jeremy James for recommending them to our program! We started off in the ICU and visited with 2 little boys. Alexei was there again, as we met him during our March visit and it was a match made in heaven with him and Officer Ray. Alexei had just said before his surgery he wanted to go into something to do with the SWAT team and it was ironic that we brought along a real SWAT member. They chatted and chatted, and Officer Ray showed him some of his equipment and the parents were thrilled. Then we went to the general PEDS floor and visited with 14 children. Children just looked at Officer Ray and a huge smile appeared on their faces. It is really starting to become a rewarding trip each month as we are now seeing children from previous visits coming back for treatments, or surgeries an the parents are really appreciating us taking such an interest in their child’s life.
