The Story Behind Pints for the PICU

Our daughter, Emersyn, had open heart surgery five days after she was born.

That meant we would be in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Connecticut Children’s for an unknown amount of time.

During our stay we brought a book with us, In My Heart, in the hopes that everyone who helped Emersyn on her journey would sign it and maybe leave a little message. To our surprise every doctor, nurse, and surgeon loved the idea and each took the time to write her a personal note. Some long, some short, but each one from their hearts. Those beautiful words that helped get us through Emersyn’s surgery, will one day help us explain to her what she went through and, most importantly, who her angels were.

Exactly one year to the day of her surgery we received a letter from Agnes and Kayla, two of Emersyn’s nurses from the PICU. They loved the idea of the book so much, they managed to pull some funding together and had just given their first round of In My Heart books to their current cardiac patients. And all the doctors, nurses, and surgeons signed each one.
