Visiting Jared in the hospital

Tommys little friend has been through quite a lot in his life. He was born with heart problems and has a pacemaker. He was told this year that he would need to have another operation on his heart. Jared is such a sweet and fun little boy. He is so full of life and Tommy's best friend in Kindergarten.

It was so cute when we got to the hospital. Jared had been so excited that Tommy was coming to visit him and the hospital. As we walked in to the ICU all the nurses, smiled and greeted us, and said: you must be Tommy. We have heard all about you all day long. Jared has been so excited for you to come. It was really sweet. They were both a little shy at first. I don't think Tommy new what to expect. But it didn't take long for them to start playing as usual.

Here is a picture taken of the pals over a year ago. They are such good friends and have such good times together. Tommy is so lucky to have such a good friend. And he is very thankful that his many prayers were answered in behalf of Jared and that his surgery was very successful. In fact his surgery went so well, he was in and out of the hospital in a week, and started school again yesterday.

I'm glad to hear Tommy's friend is doing better. That was so neat that he could go visit him in the hospital. I'm sure it made Jared's day.

We have Jared's aunt and uncle in our ward. They often mention how Tommy is Jared's best friend! They hear about Tommy all the time. And I understand that Jared is the most loyal friend to Tommy.

that is just so sweet. It's nice to hear of good friendships at a young age. And that is so nice that you were able to visit Jared.
