I think Chris is the youngest person on this hall of the hospital. Sometimes, I feel like we’re in the middle of our own personal frat party because we are loud compared to everyone else. Even through all of the chaos, uncertainty, fear and sickness, we have found time to laugh and be ourselves. I hope we’re not bothering the rest of the patients, but hey, laughter is good for the soul, right?
Today, he had physical therapy for the first time since being admitted to the hospital. He did awesome and his physical therapist is great. and as an added bonus, she’s here all week, so we get to keep her! Tonight, when we walked the halls, we made up a little game where he would touch the wall at the end of the hall in order for the walk to count. I think tomorrow we should add a high five at the end of each lap. Gotta keep it fun over here.
Yesterday, I noticed the whiteboard in his room with his nurses names had a really big blank spot on it in the “plan for today” box. It made me sad, so I came up with a plan:
Turns out, putting these little lists on the whiteboard where we could see them 24/7 helped. We accomplished everything on the list and it’s fun to think of creative things to strive for.
We’re going to be here for a few more days. What would YOU add to the list?
