    Smartie has arrived

    I’ve Been Sprung!

    Mommy & Daddy are proud to let the world know that I’m being sent home! I can’t wait to get to my own bed and see my puppy. I feel like I’ve been in forever. The PICU is a scary place but they do have great care. But I’ve never been happier to leave. Homeward bound!  Onwards & upwards!
