Her Name Is Summer Flowers
She is a nurse and crew member for East Care air lift services. She stayed with Lucy in the helicopter when we couldn't. Summer came to visit yesterday at the hospital to see how she was doing. Lucy literally put on a brave face before getting on board the helicopter and was nervous to leave us behind. But, Mrs. Flowers described our little passenger as chatty! What?! I couldn't help but probe further.
Summer said as they were making small talk Lucy pronounced, "You know...this is the first time I've ever been bitten by a shark."
She said the scariest part of the ride was the landing and as they began to "go down", Summer said she looked around her and asked, "Who's driving this thing?"
When they landed near the trauma bay, Lucy offered some advice, "When we get in there, tell them they DON'T have to open it (her leg) up, they can just do an x-ray."
She told Summer, "I miss my mom. I like you, but I really miss my mom."
We like Summer, too. And we are glad she could be there.
