How could be possibly go to CHOP tomorrow without, first, thanking everyone for today?! Smile 4 Riley Day at Applebee’s was fantastic! The kindness of everybody was overwhelming. It was so great to see everybody. We got to see alot of people we haven’t seen in a while, people we see all the time, and people we never knew before today. The outpouring of support from strangers was unbelievable! Thank you to all of you who are now visiting Riley’s site for the first time.
We have a few extra special thanks….which is hard to do because I don’t want anyone to feel that we aren’t greatful for anything they may have done…that being said…..Thank you to Jackie and Dennis….you guys we’re awesome today! The both of you never fail to be true friends. Thank you to Chris who never stopped the whole time she was at Applebee’s today. If she wasn’t handing out flyers she was taking pictures. I couldn’t have asked for our relationship to have turned out better. Thank you to my parents who came and brought my grandmother. That was great in itself to have my grandmother there. Thanks also for dinner and for taking Christian home with you. I think everyone I’ve mentioned is part of Team Riley. What a team we are. Tomorrow our captian will go in and show us what he’s made of.
There are a million more thank you’s to say, but Im about out of time. It’s 11:30pm and I still have to finish packing for tomorrow, and feed Riley his last bottle before fasting. I will post a few pics, but there are many more. I have lots from lunch, but I only have time to put up a few, but Chris and Dennis have more of the evening to put up.
