I have decided that I want to receive my medical care at a children's hospital from now on....for the rest of my days. Little old lady with her walker and hearing aids at the kiddie hospital?? Yep. Sign me up! For one thing, they're colorful. I mean, literally every wall is splashed with some beautiful bright color...reds, blues, yellows. How anyone could possibly ever be in a bad mood with all those pretty colors is beyond me. Aaaand they have fish tanks everywhere..... c'mon, who doesn't LOVE looking at fishies?! And they play awesome Disney movies all day (need I say more on that one? Hello?! Disney rocks!!!) But, my absolute favorite part is how NICE everyone is!!! I mean, from the moment you walk in the door, everyone has a smile on their face (probably all the bright colors and the Disney soundtracks in the background) Seriously, genuinely, honestly NICE! They love their job and they are happy to be there (or they're all really, really good actors) and they go above and beyond to make me AND my family feel at home and comforted. They offer lots of praise and encouragement, like leg and arm pats and "good job" and "you're doing great, almost done" and "thanks for being so still, you're such a good patient"....a girl could get used to that, ya know! So, this time Mom came with me again. Are you seeing a pattern here? Personally I think Mom's in it for the free Disney movies and juice boxes, but don't tell her I said that.
|Mom...lookin' like a PRO!|
|Big smile under that mask :-D This is me, BEFORE the needles....obviously!|
