The kids who have been admitted for any length of time look longingly at the airlock doors that leave the hallway they are not allowed to leave.  So, when discharge day comes, it is a pretty exciting time. For those of you who are confused - yes this was published out of order since Heather couldn't get the video to post properly originally, but I've back-dated it now.

They call it a "Bubble Parade" (and there are some fun videos of hospitals that have actually bubbles and a bell for the kid to ring at the end) because it used to involve bubbles, but they have modernized and it now has light-up sticks and spinning things and lots of whooping and hollering.  They asked for a song, and we weren't sure what to choose originally, and probably Grace doesn't care too much (as you can see from her face at the end, the whole thing was pretty overwhelming, but once the camera turned off and I asked her if she wanted to push the door opening button she was happy about that).  But, we thought the rest of our family would appreciate Raining Tacos, which is sometimes played loudly while dishes are being done at home (the dishwasher is in charge of the music for the evening, so the music varies quite a bit depending on who is washing the dishes).

Without further ado, here is the grand exit:

Yes, she seems a little unsure about all the hoopla. Good job, Grace (and mom & dad). Love to all!
