CORPUS CHRISTI - On Tuesday Morning the patients and staff of the Driscoll Children’s Hospital were greeted by surprise visitors from Sesame Street. Characters Elmo and Cookie Monster arrived at 9:30 A.M. and went from room to room greeting patients.

The staff was happy to welcome the characters on the chilly Tuesday morning and were surprised to see them as they made their rounds at the facility. The patients were equally delighted to see the characters walk into their rooms for a surprise visit.

The characters gave both hugs and high-fives to spread cheer throughout the hospital.

The stop was a part of the Sesame Street Live tour that was held at the American Bank Center on Tuesday and Wednesday.
