Recently, my daughter spent some time in the hospital. It’s such a negative time for children. A lot of blood work, IV’s, X-rays and ultrasounds and even more crying. Yet, my husband, daughter, and I left feeling positive!? We were so impressed with all the staff we met, from the Child Life specialist bringing her a DVD player while she went for testing (what a life saver!) and doing play therapy with her to reduce her anxiety around the IV. The Pediatrician who worked with her was so positive and kind and the RN’s spent so much time to try to make her feel comfortable and at ease with the whole experience.
With all this, we wanted to show our thanks. I found a great, general, thank you printable on Jasey’s blog that worked really well. I like it because it is gender neutral, easy, and who wouldn’t want a coffee pick-me-up during their 12 hour shift!? I also liked that it is prepackaged and has a long shelf life, so it won’t be thrown out if not eaten with in a few hours.
I printed the thank-you’s out, attached the note to the bottles of Frappuccinos (from Costco) with some raffia and put them in a green tray from the dollar-store, easy! Thank you, Jasey from Jasey’s Crazy Daisy for sharing with us!
I will be using these again and again for my daughter’s teachers, TAs in my classroom or anyone who deserves a little thank you! We even gave one to my dear friend who coaxed my stinky patient into the bath tub during our hospital stay.
Print these cuties out and spread a little love!
