Hospital Visiting Address

We'd love to see you, I don't think there are specified visiting hours, we are generally up and about from 7AM to 9PM - two visitors are allowed at a time in our room (one if we are both here, though they haven't enforced it when we've had more kids than that over.  And our new room is bigger, so it probably is fine).

Use this address to arrive at the parking garage:

Boston Children's Patient and Family Parking
2 Blackfan St
Boston, MA 02115

Get a parking ticket as you enter the garage and bring it with you. Remember which floor you parked on, there is a bridge on the 4th floor to the main entrance.  Validate your parking pass as you come in at the desk on the left as that will save a lot of money. You will need a photo id and they will give you a visitor pass that you will need to scan in the elevator and to get to our wing.  Continue on to the "main elevators", which are purple.  Go to floor 6 (scan your pass before pressing the button).  Look for signs for "6 West".  The first set of doors has a place to scan your pass.  Put the bar code to the right and it often works well to slide it up and down until the door clicks.  All doors should be opened using the handicapped buttons rather than manually opening.  You will hear a click when the doors unlock, then press the button to open the doors.  The next set of doors is an "airlock" not quite spaceship quality but tries to keep the air in the wing filtered and separate. Open the door.  Wash your hands while you wait for the door to close.  Once the door behind you has closed, you can open the next door using the button on your right.  Go through the doors and turn right.  Our room is 615, at the end fhe hall on the left.

When you leave, get an additional validation parking pass from us.  Go to floor 1 and then follow directions to the Sky Bridge. Scan your ticket before returning to your car at the machines on each floor.  After scanning your validated ticket, it should have something less than $11 remaining.  Then scan the parking pass from us which will reduce your fee to $0.  Take your ticket and scan it as you drive out of the garage.

Does Grace have this?

Or could you send me a link for something comparable that Grace would enjoy?

She actually just got that one in the mail last week. She hasn't really figured out the "re-usable" part of it yet, but it was enjoyable.

I looked around in that category, and saw these: Animal Stickers

I mailed some stickers to you all last week. Wondering if you received them and if they are big enough for Grace to use.

Yes, Nancy, we did get the stickers you sent, thank you!

They are a fine size.
