December 20, 2009

HI everyone....thought I'd try my hand at a blog. I have always wanted to be a writer so maybe this is the avenue for me.

I am sitting here at Brigham and Women's hospital with my son Jonathan who is in here battling a virus. It's been a year since his bone marrow transplant in California so it is discouraging for us both to be here instead of celebrating his year anniversary on the "outside".

It is snowing today which makes it seem a little holidayish...I have been trying to do my Christmas shopping in the hospital gift shop which leaves a bit to be desired. Thank goodness for gift cards.

I am anxious to share pictures of my brand new baby granddaughter Evelyn Grace Goss born on Nicholas's birthday...I promise to download them from my camera during the winter break. She's beautiful!

Please keep prayers coming for Jonathan. This is the season of angels and I know he is surrounded by them.


  1. Dear Gayle,

    You are an amazing cyberwoman. Not only are you on facebook but now you are a blogger.
    I hope Jonathan is feeling better and I look forward to seeing pictures of "herself" Evelyn.
    Keep me posted.

  2. Hi Gayle,
    What a clever gal! Thinking of you and your family today. Yummy gingerbread men and Merry Christmas thoughts all around!

  3. Hi Gayle!

    Congrats on the blog... you are so savvy! I send baskets of hugs, kisses and good wishes to you and Jonathan... Nick, Jess and Little Miss Evelyn, too! Cannot wait to see photos of the Little Princess. Love you dearly, Wendy
