I had a nice time at the big hospital on this therapy cat visit. On our way to Pediatrics, we ran into some staff members who were so happy to see me! And as soon as we got there, the first room with a window had a young teen girl whose face lit up the moment she saw me! So as soon as we had checked in we went back there.
I curled up with the girl for a long while while she and her father chatted about me in Spanish. They talked to my human in English, though. A big group of nurses with a machine showed up for her at the end of our visit. We don’t know what was going on with the girl to warrant that many nurses. Unless there is an obvious injury or the patient themselves say something, we never know why the patient is in the hospital. It’s not important anyway, although I do hope the girl will be okay.
Other than that, Pediatrics was quiet, so we went down to first floor Rehab and visited with an older lady whose daughter was there. They both really were enchanted with me. The daughter had a dilute calico and she told my human all about her and showed her photos. My human really enjoyed that.
After a brief stop at the Cancer Center, we went over to Behavioral Medicine. That is one of our special stops on Monday. There were three patients to see me, a young man with tattoos on his face, an older Spanish speaking lady in a wheelchair, and a man who seemed to be in his 30s. Each of them got to spend time with me and pet me. The staff really likes me a lot there too.
While not the busiest day, it was a good visit.
