It’s been quite some time since I’ve made a post. Life has been hectic over the last month and a half, but I’m back. I’m hoping to not be gone that long again. I’ve been busy with work, getting a part time job, and house/dog/baby sitting. When unexpected bills come up, you do what you have to do.
This post though I’m using as what I’m hoping will be a stepping stone into being able to do this a couple of times a year. I lost my dad in November, as I’m sure many of you have read in previous posts. I got to thinking about all the times I had been practically living in the hospital and not wanting to leave his side especially when he would be in the intensive care unit or the critical care unit. You often don’t think to grab some of the essential items you need because you never think that your loved one will end up in the ICU/CCU. Knowing first hand how quickly things can take a turn, I want to be able to provide care packages for those who have family members in the ICU/CCU who don’t want to leave to even go down to the gift shop to get something as simple as a phone charger. My hope is for my birthday and then for the anniversary of my dad’s passing is to be able to provide care packages with essential things such as a hair brush, phone charger, a toothbrush/toothpaste, a neck pillow, and some snacks for those late nights when you can’t sleep and don’t want cafeteria food. If you are interested in donating or sharing this, please visit David Siedelmann Memorial Care Package.
I want to let others know that they are not alone and that they will have items provided so they don’t have to have one additional thing to worry about.
