Letter: Community rallies for son

Community rallies for son

Dear Editor:

I am writing to thank the entire Aspen community for its prayers and support during our son’s recent health scare.

Sloan had two surgeries on a septic hip at Denver Children’s Hospital and spent two weeks there. Sloan returned home to Aspen on Sunday in time to celebrate his 11 birthday on Wednesday.

Shelly and I would like to extend our personal thanks to Dr. Mitchell at Aspen Valley Pediatrics and the emergency room staff at Aspen Valley Hospital for quickly identifying the infection in Sloan’s hip and encouraging us to get to Children’s immediately.

The doctors and nurses at Children’s were wonderful and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

In addition, we want to thank our Crossroads Church family for prayers and encouragement, the school district and my colleagues at the Aspen Education Foundation, our Cemetery Lane community and our dear friends who cared for our other children while we were in Denver.

Support came from every corner of this amazing community and we feel so fortunate to call Aspen home.

Thank you very much, Aspen!

Robin L. Hamill III
