Another day of sitting in the hospital. For years, our family took part in the Rotary Club carol sing at the hospital on Christmas morning. As we moved through the wards, we stuck our heads in rooms to say "Merry Christmas!" to lonely, elderly people and new parents, and we shared lyric sheets with patients and nurses. Santa was with us and visited all the patients and staff who wanted to see him. Today we were on the other side when two music therapists with guitars came to Mom's room, gave percussion instruments to her and her roommate, and invited us to sing. They were pleasantly surprised by our enthusiasm but singing in a hospital room was nothing new for us! :)
The best news is that Mom was discharged just before dinner so we won't spend Christmas at the hospital.
