Then we went to the regional hospital and donated 4 more care packages for parent's who deliver their baby stillborn. This is the third or fourth time we have taken these packages. The nurse there said that they (the nurses) really appreciate having these to give the patients. She said they gave the last one they had away 2 days ago.
Next, Ben wanted to donate blood. He usually does it every couple of months so we stopped by the blood center and he donated.
Then on to the last donation of the day. My hair. This is the 5th time I have donated my hair and I was so excited to do it. I had planned on doing it after Jakin was born. I have donated shortly after each of my babies have been born. Here is the before shot of the back...
And here is the after:
It will look much nicer when I get to dry it and fix it (and my eyes are open...sheesh...I wish I could take a decent photo!). I will send it in to Locks of Love tomorrow! (If you are interested in donating your hair as well, you can also look into Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program. They make wigs for cancer patients.)
We are all at home now and getting ready to get settled in for a family night. We're thinking of grilling and watching a funny video. Thanks to everyone who linked up my last post to remind us of something funny. We appreciate the thoughts and prayers and laughter!
