Day 10



( In case you missed it - I just added a TIP on yesterday's post yesterday that may be of interest .)

Three Beautiful Things


1. Spring in Washington, DC is beautiful. White and pink flowering trees are in full bloom - this glory is short-lived. A sharp breeze sends petals drifting - sometimes it looks like snow flakes floating down.

2. Day 10 - yes I am walking - to the garage, the cafeteria, etc etc.

3. Jim update - he cannot go home today afterall. He is making good progress but they have not conclusively identified the guilty bacteria which hs caused it all and they will not send him home until they are sure which antibiotic will be the best.

More about the GW Hospital Senior Advantage Program: We were very surprised when a representative arrived at Jim's room carrying a lovely plant
and a smiling welcome to the program - along with a guest meal ticket and a stamp for an hour of free parking. Lovely

-and I wish you could have seen Jim's face later when he ordered his supper and they told him about the VIP menu - salmon for supper.
And this delicious supper was served on a silver tray using china dishes. Wow!

These small moments of feeling a bit special have healing power.

Definitely a Senior Advantage,

I have a "discount membership card" to my preferred hospital but do not know if it includes discounts such as you mentioned but certainly "Thanks" for the tip. Especially since it suggest the possibility of getting a 'private' verse 'semi-private' room!
