Unfortunatly we have a friend with a 3 year old who is in the hospital for his second surgery this week. After the last surgery we brought over a little basket of cheer (and food) to make this awful process a tiny bit easier.
We involved out kids, since the idea of taking care of the sick is an incredibly important value for us. We let them each have a say in the food and gifts we brought, and my 5 year old even made a special box of "fun" for our friend to use in the hospital.
What to bring a sick kid in the hospital?
We wrapped a gift. It's a collection of craft projects that are really easy to do, hopefully form a hospital bed in the 7-10 day recovery. Similar to the Alex Toys My Giant Busy Box. Don't ask why I took a picture of my hand with a pop-up tape dispenser on it. Just imagine I was in the process of wrapping:)
Then we packed a cooler basket of food. What food do you bring to a sick friend? Yummy snacks, fruit, string cheese and applesauce, the basic kid foods that they might need. Plus we brought lunch over that day, kid-freindly and a slightly more grown up version as well.
All wrapped up and ready to go. The second present is for his sister, since you can't only pay attention to one sibling in the family, even if he is the one having surgery.
Just send a little extra web-love to our friends, and pray for a full and speedy recovery. Thank you.
