1) During my time in the hospital with Ricki it became clear that the therapeutic dosage of my morning coffee is two cups…..
2) One of the older patients decided within 5 minutes of meeting us that Ricki is "spoiled" . Gee, thanks. G-d, please never let me get so judgmental.
3) Special thanks to the nurse who saw me walking the halls late one night, trying to get my 10,000 minimumdaily steps in.
"Why don't you walk outside?"
"I'm afraid Ricki might wake up…"
"So she'll call 'Mommy Mommy' . Go ahead; be back in half an hour…."
