Nellie and Ellie's Adventures
Nellie and Ellie's
Hi! My name is Nellie. I am 5 years old. I have Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, which means I have lots of hospital adventures. My adventures can be very interesting. I think it is because Ellie, my pet elephant, always comes with me. This adventure is about a trick I use to help make my hospital stays just a little bit easier. I've learned a lot along the way, and I can't wait to tell you all about it. My teacher, Mrs. Humble-Bee, tells me there is always something new to learn. I hope you join me on my adventures, then we can learn together. Adventures are always better with good friends!
