It’s been a really good day for Shawn. Two really good days in a row, in fact. I’ve been telling him about all the people who have reached out to me to extend their love and support to us during this time and he has a request. For all of you.
Today, during our visit, Shawn talked a lot about the hospital staff who have been with us through this journey. They’re heroes, every single one of them. He made a point during the day today to personally thank as many of them as he could. He even apologised to those he felt that he was a “hard patient” for during his rougher moments. Every one of them, every single one, told him that that’s all they really want. Just a simple thank you now and then. They’re so modest.
But, here’s what Shawn wants. So many of you have offered help. So many have said, just tell me what you need and we’ll do it. Well here it is. Straight from the Big Guy to you:
Please write a personal thank you note. Please write one and send it to me here in New Brunswick so that I can take them in to the staff at the hospital and show them the impact THEY’VE had on all our lives by saving his. He asks that if you can spare five bucks, send it priority mail so that it gets here before they send him home….which, could be as early as next week!!
Our address is 291 Hampton Road, Quispamsis New Brunswick E2E 4N4
Angela, I’m counting on you to get this out to the Transfrieght gang. Martha and Scott and all.
Words cannot express, dear friends, the amount of joy in my heart today. Please take a moment out of your day to do this for Shawn. And for us as well. The whole staff there has embraced our family and they treat us like one of their own. We are blessed and they truly are heroes.
