More on China -Spring is coming?

Spring officially begins on Thursday and Easter is this coming Sunday but the snow keeps falling in Taylorsville. The new shoots from the bulbs planted last fall are boldy rising forth so Spring really must coming. . . We're ready.

Visiting Canuck
The Taggart family is enjoying a visit from Lisa Aldredge from Alberta Canada this week. Lisa is a close friend of Joseph's from back when they were both going to school and the ward in Bristol England. It's a joy to have her around for a few days.

The planned stem cell treatments in China will occur a few days earlier than we originally planned. We will leave on May 1st and arrive in Qingdao on May 2nd. The hospital where the therapy is planned will be:

Qingdao Chengyang People's Hospital
Stem Cell Treatment Rehabilitation Center
8th +9th floor, VIP Ward, Changcheng road #600
Chengyang district, Qingdao, Shandong Province, China

The Hospital is just 2 miles from the International Airport and about 18 miles from the port area of Qingdao (Illustration on right). We are scrambling to get things in order so we can be ready. Gloria is glowingly looking forward to long naps and playing with the grandkids. . . she can't wait until May 1st.

We want to thank those who have donated toward Joseph's treatment. It is humbling and a bit overwhelming to know that others are committed to Joseph's success in life and in his desire for this therapy in China. Some have asked for info on the donation account. It is:
