Can someone tell me, do I put these out on the tray for visitors and staff to help themselves to? Or do I give them to the nurses and staff as I arrive? Or do I give them to the nurses and staff as I leave?

It sounds like a GREAT idea. I am just so discombobulated that I don't know if I can pull it off unless I have it taken care of beforehand... I really am an organizational nut.

I thought that a HUMONGOUS bag of hersheys candy from Costco would be a good idea....then possibly all of the shifts will get some, not just the shift that is there when I leave it. Chocolate is definitely the way to go!

I had chocolates and hard candies. Individually wrapped is the way to go. I just put them in a big plastic bowl I brought from home and set them as near to the door as I could - whenever a nurse came in, I reminded them of it and told them to tell the other nurses, too. Even the ones who didn't want to eat candy appreciated the gesture. When I was up walking around, I brought it down the hall and offered it to them all. I know I'd have gotten equally excellent care at this place without them, but it was a good way to say thanks (saying it with words will be very appreciated, too).

Sounds like fun :)

I can't wait to start making my suck up basket! How big of a basket do you recommend? I'm a Longaberger collector, but I probably should buy a less expensive, yet cute basket, so they can keep it??

Should there be other stuff besides candy? I have some lotion bar samples from another direct sales company. I could put those in. What do you think?

BTW... what are the smiley stickers on the belly for? I think I missed something somewhere!

Hi Cyndi and All New LIW

The stickers were a trademark trend that started with the following thread:


Check it out, then go buy your smiley stickers!!

What sort of sticker location would you suggest for the gals having vaginal hysterectomies???
Unread 05-16-2002, 08:36 PM
With a vaginal hyst,

I'd probably put the sticker on top of the upper thigh. Or on the inside of the thigh.

Any other suggestions from anyone brave enough to try this?

I am absolutely hysterical about the hyster-stickers! This definitely needs to be at the mall! It should be pink or purple with a crown!

I will definately need to find a sticker to put on my belly!

That's on cool term, "hyster-stickers"! I think that will work!

well--I hadn't thought about a "suck up basket" for the hospital staff---i'm just so focused on my surgery and getting thru the hospital stay---but what the heck, I think I'll bring along a basket of goodies for the staff. Being from the medical field, I do know it means alot for the nurses and doctors to feel appreciated!
