Dedicated to the Angels among us...

Update: My daughter is making a miraculous recovery and should be home soon. Your thoughts and prayers brought us all through this. Thank you...


This post is dedicated to the extraordinary health care professionals at Hackensack University Medical Center (Children's Wing) who have and are continuing to help our daughter recover from critical illness. The doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and social workers in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit have been remarkable. Their sensitivity and understanding of our daughter's needs (as well as her family's) have been limitless.

In particular, my wife and I would like to personally thank Mike H whose optimism and uncanny ability to make our daughter smile (her parents too!) place us forever in his debt. Mike's wisdom, humility, and selflessness are qualities that make him truly unique among a unique group of dedicated caring professionals.

Thank you. She is our 'miracle' girl and should be home in a few days.

I was remiss in not acknowledging the wonderful work done by our local police and rescue squad. They are an extremely important part of this team.

Thank you, Lee. She is doing much better -- even the doctors are surprised. Everyone's prayers are working...
