The Roman/Smith Family, Bronx, New York
Rufus arrives at Jordan's house in the Bronx.
Jordan was so excited to meet Rufus. He has been waiting for him, but due to the tragedy in NY, our mail has been delayed. I hope all that receive Rufus are well and we pray for everyone and their families. Jordan's dad is an EMS worker and luckily he was able to escape with a few scrapes.
Rufus goes to day care with Jordan. All the children were so excited to meet him.
Jordan and Rufus go to the doctor. Jordan is not feeling too well. We introduced Rufus to the doctors and nurses, and he was able to cheer up the other children who were not feeling well.
9/19/010-09/20/01 Mommy, Jordan and Rufus stay home. All are not feeling well. We washed Rufus' clothes and he's been sleeping in the living room. We don't want anyone else to catch a cold!
Rufus helps Jordan with his set change. Jordan does "pop" to Rufus so he can also receive his insulin through the pump!
Quiet weekend. Rufus celebrated Daddy's birthday and both received a big bolus for cake! Rufus will be going to the next family soon. Going to have to get Jordan his own Rufus - he will miss him.
