In an e-mail to her friends, my mom had the perfect description for Julianna: she is “happy, bold, confident and commanding.”
Oct 2014: — To a male PICU nurse:
J: You are very handsome.
7 June 2015 – (recorded in an e-mail to friends)
J learns that she is going to meet a new nurse soon.
J: Make sure you tell her about me
M: Ok – what’s the most important thing I should tell her?
J: I’m funny.
M: Uh huh.
J: Cute. Smart. Gorgeous
J: My eyes look like almonds. I’m honest. One day, I realized I like straight hair.
Steve exercises J’s legs during body breaks. The TV is usually on. Whenever Steve pauses and looks at the TV, J says:
J: Dad, Dad, exercise!
And if he looks away again,
J: Dad, focus what you’re doing!
