Its amazing what services are out there to help people with special needs children. I generally feel kind of bad like I'm taking a handout whenever my husband and I both are blessed with wonderful jobs and can pay for trips to the hospital. Anyways, a lady from the help desk of Nationwide Children's Hospital called me and asked if we'd like to have a donated hotel room for our visit next week. I was confused at first, because I hadn't asked them for "help" or a room, they just called me, set it up and sent us the reservation information. She said its just something that local hotels do for families of children visiting their hospital that have to drive farther than 3 hours. Crazy huh?
Well we also found out that we have been approved to have our meals paid for on this trip and our mileage through another program that our EI told us about. Its pretty crazy, but really is a blessing. Of course now we kind of feel bad for the restaurants we normally go to on our trips - its not like we want to have people paying for us to eat at P.F. Changs or anything. So we are going to behave and eat at much cheaper places. :)
