A visit from A. FluffyBunny

David is not hallucinating, he really did get a visit
from a nurse who calls himself A. FluffyBunny. His
job is to put in new IV's, when this 6'1" male nurse
wearing a red hawaiian shirt approached a dozing
David, he wasn't sure what was going on. When he read
his name tag he thought for sure he was hallucinating
when he saw his name, A. FluffyBunny. David couldn't
let this one go and when he asked him if it was his
real name he said, "yes". Here's his story, when he
turned 50 years old he decided to give himself a
birthday present and legally change his name to A.
FluffyBunny so that he can bring joy, laughter and
happiness to the people around him. What a guy!!
David made sure the other nurses around him could
support his story when he told it to me so that I
didn't think he was going crazy. His story checked
out. The nurse's friends call him the "Fluffmeister".

Another nurse, not A. FluffyBunny, said she has worked
every Christmas day for the last 8 years and every
year they do a transplant on Christmas Day, she said
to him, maybe this year it will be yours.
That's all for now.
love to all,

I heard of David's plight from my Pap list that I belong to. I wanted to send a message of prayers and thoughts throughout this process for you.

It sounds as if A. Fluffybunny has hit on a very important part of care giving.

"Hope is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tunes without the words—
And never stops—at all."
Emily Dickinson

David and Nancy,
You're in our thoughts everyday. We're all hoping and waiting for the Christmas angel.
Maureen and David (Elrich)
