Special Delivery
from Becca 

Hi Everybody!

Gosh, I am exhausted, but I wanted to write and let you all know how the delivery went. :-) Turned out pretty well actually. I was a bit bummed when I got there and the lady, Alice, that I was supposed to meet had called in sick. :-( But it was actually pretty fun, anyway. I met a lady from Newfoundland, who had a grandson in the NICU. His name is Bryce and he just had an operation on one of his eyes. He is only 5 months old and they think he will only have 20% vision if he is lucky and they can save that much. How sad, eh? But I was really happy when she told me how beautiful the blankets were (I had them in a big clear plastic garbage bag) and how she was so glad that there would be something other than the boring white sheets that are there right now. :-) The nurse who took all the boxes and the big bag of blankets from me was called Liz and I got my pic taken with her. I also took some pics around the hospital, in the NICU and the Atrium. So, I have all those to share with you and the pics of the actual items donated. I sorted them all into piles of hats, booties, hat & bootie sets, blankets, clothing (sleepers, ponchos), toys, videos, etc. Wow, was this ever a great delivery, ladies!!! You really outdid yourselves!!! :-)

Anyway, I arrived at the hospital at about 10:30 and was out in about 20 min. I would have liked to get a little tour around, but ... oh well. Then, my mom, dad, little sis, and I went out to lunch at one of our fave restaurants nearby ... Well, all in all, it was really a beautiful day. Thank you all so much for helping me to do this. I am very proud to part of this group!

Luvs & Hugs,
Bec
