A Walk in the Park

The day after she was released from a several day hospital stay following a pharyngeal flap construction, Ellie (3 years old) wanted to walk in the park. Typically one to run, laugh, and play, she was more serious this time, but she longed to feel the sun on her face and the wind in her hair. Her strength and determination to heal seemed to be larger factors than the physiological ones.
