Get Well Bouquet On The Way

--by brighteyes, posted Aug 20, 2008

Recently, I heard from a friend that a neighbor of mine is back in the hospital.  She has Cystic Fibrosis and many times she has bleeding in the lungs and needs immediate medical treatments and support for several days. Since she is due home today.

I will be picking up a bright flower bouquet, vase, get well card and some light reading material to make her bed stay go quicker. I am thinking of enlisting a neighbor's son to drop it off, ring the doorbell and make sure someone is home to receive it because I do not want the flowers to wilt, die or freeze. He will have to promise not to disclose my identity and I am not going to sign the card.

I hope this is a BRIGHT spot of sunshine in her day and that the goodwill and well wishes assure her that others care and encourage her to rest and take care.
