Brother Buddies

Chris and his brothers

My big brother and I are taking our baby brother Mikey for a walk. I really like it when they come to see me in the hospital, even though the baby cries sometimes. I know how to make him happy--I just do whatever he wants, and everything's fine! If you know somebody who's in the hospital, I hope that you'll call, or write, or go to visit. You can just act normal, because kids in the hospital are still the kids that they always were. They're just sick for awhile. It means so much to me to have people that I care about around me!
