Cards For Sebastian - Update

Download wordart here

***Sebastian's surgery has been rescheduled for March 7, 2012***

***Come back tomorrow for the girl version of this wordart***

***Sebastian's surgery has been postponed until March. I will hold the cards until then and they will be placed in his hospital room. I just can't wait to see them all!***

First of all, just let me say WOW!!! I have updated the Amazing post from Wednesday with all the links I could find that mentioned Sebastian and the card drive. Please check it out and let me know about any links I've missed. I don't want to forget to thank anyone for helping with the cards for Sebastian.

Thursday night, one of my friends suggested that I call the hospital and let them know about the card drive we're doing for Sebastian just in case cards started arriving early. I called and they were so nice, but the person I actually needed to talk to was out of the office. I left a message with my phone number explaining what we were doing and said that I just wanted to make sure cards didn't get returned to the sender if they arrived early.

Friday after school Sebastian's mom told me that she had gotten a message from the hospital saying that they needed to reschedule Sebastian's surgery. She hadn't had a chance to return the call at that point so she wasn't able to give me any details, but promised to let me know more as soon as she could. She was worried about all the kind things people are doing for Sebastian, but I assured her that everything was going to be fine. I can simply hold onto the cards untill they get another date chosen. Plus, it gives us more time to get cards for Sebastian!

I am hoping that it's just a short delay and that they will do this surgery sooner rather than later for Sebstian and his mother. I'll let you know as soon as a date is set and promise that pictures will be posted of Sebastian with all the cards he receives.

On Monday morning, if I haven't heard anything from the hospital, I'll be calling them again. I have seen the adorable cards you've posted on your blogs and I want to make sure none of them get lost.

I also have to let you know that cards have already started arriving for Sebastian at school and it is so exciting! I will try my best to keep you updated on them as they come in. So far we've gotten cards from...

  6. I have wonderful stamps to go with this sentiment, thank you Ginger!

  7. I hoped my card arrived and I'm glad to see it did. I now know I write my name toooo fast! It is Passow from DeKalb, IL. But what's a couple extra letters, huh? Too funny! It brought tears to my eyes to think about all the love and support that is being shown to this sweet little boy, Sebastian, from all over the world. In this crazy world, it is so wonderful to have a reminder that a random person, on a random blog, randomly reached out in kindness to ask for a show of support and love to help a little boy, who was randomly placed in her class and that randomly, good people from all over the world answered the call. Restores my faith in the overall, goodness of humanity. We are our brother's keeper. Soooo glad I found your random blog through Cindy's Splitcoaststampers, Teapot Tuesday group post, which she posted from another Teapotter's request, who posted it otherwise. And I'm so glad to be part of the TPT challenges because it gives me a chance to make and send cards to people all over, who need a show of love and support. And I have much more of that than I could every give in a lifetime so ... . To you Ginger--I love the way your blog is so full of thoughts and ramblings that are unique to you, as well as, express many of our thoughts and feelings, as well. It's refreshing and "real" and I am here to stay. Thanks for being you! :)

  8. Ginger, so sorry his surgery was re-scheduled. I sent my card to the hospital and did not see my name on your list. Let me know if it did not get there or they did not keep it so I can make it over again and send it. It is so important to me to make Sebastian's day a little better. I should have mailed it to you! You have my url and e-mail, Thanks, Sylvia
