My nephew made a brief evening visit to the hospital. I was ready with a black t-shirt and bleach gel pen. We poured over magazines together to find a shape to inspire our t-shirt design. We collaborated to watch the magic of the gel pen together. The nurse apparently enjoyed our diversion asking questions about our project. She even returned to the room later to see the end result!
The funniest moment of the day occurred during lunch. Once we knew the surgery had successfully finished, recovery was a wrap and our family member was safely back in the hospital room we snuck out for a late lunch. I was amused to see chicken gizzards were available for $3.95. Perhaps its a delightful menu option but I simply could not stop laughing.
