CHOC patients were treated to two super-celebrity visits when Elmo and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street Live visited Seacrest Studios at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Both performed a few of their song and dance routines including the celebrated favorite, “Sunny Days”. Patients also enjoyed watching Cookie Monster try his best to eat up all of the cookies during the “Cookie Catch” game that he played.
Their visit brightened up the kids' day as they danced, posed for photos and gave lots of hugs and high fives. There were lit up faces and squeals of “Elmo, Elmo, Elmo!” along with wide smiles, laughs and lingering embraces throughout the visit! In one room that was visited on the Neurology floor, a patient reached for a cookie bin beside their bed, and shared a few cookies, to the extreme delight of Cookie Monster.
It truly was a special day filled with extra smiles thanks to the wonderful energy and love that everyone felt from Elmo and Cookie Monster!
