We spent this past week in San Diego for Lila's stem cell treatment. We were picked up on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. by the doctors and headed over the border. The hospital was a private facility, where the doctors were ready for us the minute we arrived. Within 10 minutes we were in the room, Lila was changed into hospital garb, and she was wheeled back into the surgery room. The treatment only took 20-30 minutes and she was back in the room with us. Lila had a hard time coming out of sedation, but after the crying stopped, her spirits were lifted and she was wired for the rest of the day. Her body was so tired, but her mind was on full speed all day. It took us 1 hour and 45 minutes to get back over the border and into LaJolla, while the entire time Lila was singing, laughing, and enjoying herself (Matt and I were about to fall asleep).
