Today the friends of Dom wanted to say a huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts to the doctors, sisters and the staff of St Luke’s ICU who have taken Dom into their hearts as they treat him for meningitis. On Friday as Dom was admitted to ICU, his family, friends and the staff have been his most ardent supporters in his fight against the meningitis virus that he contracted. His mom and dad have mentioned daily the amazing care and concern that the staff have shown their son and we thought that it would be special to thank these staff in a small way with a lovely hamper of goodies, individual cupcakes and a card. I met 2 of these staff today who were delighted as the goodies were brought to them and Dom will be pleased to know when we get to tell him that an elderly gentleman visibly perked up and invited us to share the gifts with him too. Small smiles today as we tried to help in the way we could and show how much Dom and his family mean to us all. Today and every day as you get stronger Dom we want you and your family to know you are in our thoughts and prayers and we say thank you to all the wonderful medical staff around you who give selflessly of themselves as they treat you.
Thank you Siobhan for asking me to do your special Thank You Cupcakes for the nursing staff of the Sandton Clinic ICU. I was touched to hear your family’s story of how these medical proffesionals have helped your son during his recovery. You, Matt and your family have had a really difficult last 10 months and it is amazing that you still take the time to remember all those who have helped your son on what has been a truly tough journey. You mentioned that you loved the pics of the Purple and Silver Christmas Cupcakes I made last year so I used the purple and silver and added a little green and yellow to make flowers and snowflakes for these cupcakes. I hope that these colourful cupcakes brought a smile to many faces on Monday morning and I am delighted that I could be a part of thanking such special people at this time of the year.
