Slideshow: “Sesame Street” at Georgetown University Hospital

Patients in the pediatric unit at Georgetown University Hospital had a visit from some very special guests on Tuesday: Cookie Monster and Elmo. The life-size Muppets, who are in town to perform at the Patriot Center this weekend, hugged and high-fived some of the kids, who were excited to see the furry friends, if a little shy at first. Also excited: the doctors and nurses, who made the most of their own opportunity to pose with Cookie (when they weren’t trying to stop him from raiding the refrigerator).

Want to see Elmo and Cookie yourself? Tickets to Sesame Street Live: Elmo Makes Music are available here.
