I was thinking of flowers, too, but sometimes there is no room for them in CCU or ICU.

Yes, there is usually no room. They can be put at the nurse's station outside ICU but I'm one of those people that feel for all they are going through right now, flowers won't pay for a meal or a night in a hotel room - so......that's where my $$ are going.

Have I said how proud I am to be associated with DC? We have an amazing group of members here...truly, my heart is lifted.

I agree. What they really need is cold hard cash. Any amount any one can spare will add up quickly. I sent money this afternoon. There is no telling how long Buck will be in the hospital and while this is going on neither one can work in their shop to make a living. So dig as deep as you can. They deserve all we can can do for them . Even if you can only afford $5.00 it still will help alot.

So true, JP. We are such a big community that even $5 gifts add up quickly. And you know Katie - she would never ask or complain about the financial situation during this crisis so it's a good thing she and Buck have a big family here!

Exclamation

All of the money I have received for Katie and Buck has been sent as of a few minutes ago. I have to tell you I have a huge lump in my throat and I am so proud to know all of you gracious and generous people.

Also I'm sure Alix will be more than happy receive more money to send to Katie as people find out about this or are just waiting for their pay check etc it's never to late . Both Buck and Katie have a long road ahead and we will stay on that road with them as well as long as it takes.

Yes, jp - she is sending these in "little lumps" as she receives them. We're not done, I can feel it! Like I said ^^^ - I have never been more proud of our members.
