a few days after charlie was hospitalized, and we knew we were in for the long haul, one of angels friends who has dealt with long term hospitalization suggested opening bank account for charlie. after several more people suggested or asked about the possibility of donating to charlie, i talked with angel and rob about it. honestly, they felt awkward about it, and were very unsure about the whole deal, but didn't really have the energy to think too much about it. from the very beginning i have been concerned (as are they) about the long term costs that will be associated with the care of our special little guy and suggested that there were people who wanted to do something, but felt helpless. i let the idea go for the time being with all that was going on.
Yesterday, I got a call from a sweet, sweet, proactive friend of angel & robs, who told me she had opened an account for Charlie. so, for those who would like to donate to help with charlie's medical and long term costs, you can donate at any Utah First Credit Union. The account is in his name - Charlie Cooper Christensen. any money that isn't needed for charlie will be donated to Primary Children's Medical Center.
Again, we can't say it enough... we love you all and are constantly amazed by your show of love and support.
