Our daughter Kristin and Logan

Mom and son flaunting their favorite school colors.

Our oldest daughter Kristin is mom to our #1 grandson, Logan who is eleven years old. What a team they are. As you can tell, they both love sports. When she attended Beverly Hills High School, Kristin set a number of swimming records for her 500 yard freestyle and relay. She was recruited to the University of Arizona in Tucson and is the proud wearer of anything “Wildcats!” She loved her years there (also to be followed by our daughter, Kerri) and, obviously, is already influencing Logan. During college football season, there’s always a great bit of family rivalry and fun when U of A plays USC. Today Kristin is an RN, OCN (Oncology Certified Nurse) and works in the clinical trials division¬†of the Samuel Oschin Cancer Center at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles. She loves her job…but most of all she loves her patients and they love her. One day, I was standing at the elevators after visiting her at the facility. A very nice older gentlemen approached me having followed me out the door. He asked, “Are you a patient here?” I replied that I wasn’t. “Oh,” he said, “I saw you laughing with that pretty blonde nurse, Kristin. She’s my favorite. I just love her! In fact, sometimes I have to admit that I might come in for an extra treatment. She just makes my day!” He was so cute about it with a twinkle in his tired eyes. I eagerly responded, “Well, you’ve just made my day! I’m her Mom!”
