More ideas for Karly

OK, so besides the hats, here is what other items the Zoromski's could use:

"Other Ideas we've come up with:

1) Karly loves to get mail! Feel free to send her a card. If you want, send one to Braden, too! I think he's starting to feel a little left out. If you want our address, please email (or leave a comment) and I'll email it to you.

2) Dinner - we're tired. We're exhausted & overwhelmed - by doctor's appointments, phone calls and a million other things. I can't even describe what a relief it is to not have to think about what's for dinner at the end of the day. People have offered to drop off a dinner, and we've taken a couple people up on it. It's been WONDERFUL. We really appreciate it.

3) Money for meals at Children's Hospital.

4) We would use GIFT CARDS from the following places:

- Gas cards! Kwik Trip, Mobil, Express - wherever. We'll definitely be putting on the miles.

- Target

- Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com - Karly has received so many wonderful gifts; balloons, stuffed animals - it's hard to find her in her room!! With these types of gift cards, we can get her books, games or DVDs to help her pass the time.

- Family Video

- Toys R Us / Babies R Us - again good for items to help pass the time & some supplies we'll need for Ruby before we head to MKE again.

- Land's End (I want to get some good quality slippers for Karly)

* We've also set up a little "Donate" link on the right side of our blog that will take donations using PayPal. We'll use any funds donated there for the above expenses - mainly to keep Karly entertained and happy.

Thankfully, we have excellent health insurance - and Karly now has a secondary, Medicaid insurance. We should be good for hospital and doctor bills, which is such a relief.

Please, please do NOT feel obligated to do anything - we just put together this list because so many people have been asking what they can do to help. And, if you have any other ideas of something Karly might enjoy or need during her chemo treatments, please let us know!"

If anyone has any questions about this, please feel free to email me at ladybug_wi@yahoo.com

Thanks to all who have offered. I KNOW the Zoromski's appreciate it all!
