Another Request

Today I received another email request for bereavement items. Word is getting out about the foundation. I may need to re-think donations. I am bad about donating everything I have on hand and not keeping anything for urgent needs. Plus, being in bed all of this year (wow! sounds crazy to say that) has greatly limited my contribution to bereavement items.

Anyway, today's request came from St. Joseph's Hospital in Houston, TX. The bereavement coordinator did not give me specifics regarding their need. I hope to hear back from her shortly and will update this post.

So....let's start the 2nd Annual Remembering Emma Grace Donation Drive NOW!! :-)

ETA: Just heard back from the nurse. It's a large hospital with about 20 losses per month (5 from the NICU and 15 from L&D and antepartum). They need items (bereavement and NICU) in all sizes.

Candy - I have a few things I can send, too. You want them to go to your mom?

Also - I've tagged you to reveal "seven random things" about yourself - check out my blog for details!

So glad you're holding your own (and Austin, too!!!!)
