{The Great Unknown} :Penn Lung Transplant Evaluation Trip: Part 3

September 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

My husband and I recently traveled to Philadelphia, PA for his lung transplant evaluation at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). When I am capable of taking pictures, it can be a help to me as a distraction by focusing on my surroundings, details and the present moment. Here are some of the photos I took on our 2-day, 16-hour, one way drive and while we were in Philadelphia for two days. Some of the photos you see have "Lego Man" in them. The night before we left, the idea came into my mind to take something that belonged to our children and use it in cell phone photos that I could text to my parents so they could share them with our children. I think the children had fun seeing "Lego Man" on our trip and it was a fun distraction for me and a good way for us to stay connected to our children in a small way.
