They weren't really looking for a house, Sissy Harris recalls, but her Realtor cousin invited Sissy and her husband to have a look at the brick dwelling with the slate roof anyway. Before they had finished touring the Greenville, Del., house, Jack Harris was ready to sign on the dotted line. Jack, a lawyer, is not a man who routinely acts in haste, but the 6,300-square-foot property enticed him, not only because of its open floor plan throughout three levels, but also because it had been renovated by the former owners and was in turnkey condition - serious pluses for a busy couple with two careers, three children, and two dogs.

WILMINGTON - They moved the sickest patients first - children in isolation, with ventilators and feeding tubes, blood pressure pumps and IV poles carrying many medicines. A team of five or even six nurses, respiratory therapists, and doctors surrounded each bed, piloting it out of the old room, down hallways and around corners, applauded and cheered by colleagues at every turn, until each patient was safely reconnected to pumps and monitors in a new room. In all, 120 patients, many of them critically ill, moved Saturday into a $270 million expansion of the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington.
