My friend's boy is at great ormond street having brain surgery as we speak. I want to send a get well soon card, but is that the done thing? I want them to know we're thinking of them, but don't want to do anything that might come across in the wrong way.
I have a friend who worked there before her mat leave, so was going to see if she could find out what ward he is on for me to send the card to. I was also thinking of sending the card just from A, as they haven't met yet so thought I would make it all kind of 'get well soon so i can meet you and we can make friends' sorta thing...? I thought it might be a bit different from any other cards they get and might make them smile.
What do you think? Bad idea?

They may have lost their sense of humour at a time like this, I guess it depends in the type of people they are. If you're sure a card from A will be well received then go for it, however if their LO takes a turn for the worse, it could be a bit insensitive sending a card from your perfectly healthy child.
Maybe I'm over thinking it!
Personally I don't think you can go wrong with a 'Thinking if you' card with just 'Here whenever you need me' written inside.

Yeah maybe you're right about it being just from A... I think they would appreciate it if all was going well but i guess you never know how things are going from one minute to the next at their end

As Ducky said I wouldn't send it from A personally. I think I thinking of you type card and a message to let them know you're there if they need anything would be best . Hope it all goes well

Do you think it would be ok to send direct to the ward rather than their house?
