First, an update on Noordin:
He's been doing very well. Dr. M closed his chest on Friday. I was able to see him yesterday and he looks much pinker now! He was extubated this morning and is doing well so far. Mom has been able to get some rest and I've enjoyed visiting with her every day. I don't know if I'm going to make it over there today though, but told her I'd be there tomorrow.
Christmas All Year
Today we're excited to participate as a family in something my friend Kristina is organizing. We've been noticing that there are many opportunities to serve around Christmas time, but after the holiday season people are less inclined to participate. The need is still there though, so Kristina came up with Christmas All Year. Each month on the 25th we are going to do something to serve the community. It won't necessarily always be the same thing, but this month we are going to continue with what she started in November and bring food to the homeless in downtown Sacramento. We will meet at her house and make and assemble 200 lunches, then deliver them to those who need them. I think this is a great way to continue to care for those in our community and thought some of you reading this might be inspired to do something similar.
