Our special friend Olympia is very sick. She is in California being treated for a mysterious blood condition that appears to be autoimmune in nature. She has almost no platelets. Her white blood cells are very low. And yet, she is a smiling, happy baby. She is almost eight months old now and was in attendance, in utero, at your birth. We very much want her to get well soon and stay healthy, continuing to grow and thrive and continue bringing so much light to the world.
This year, we are lighting two menorahs each night of Hannukah, one for our family and one for hers.
You, me and Olympia in May
