Emergency Room


What is WRONG with all of you?
This is a waiting room, not party central.
This room is so cold.
The curtain between two beds is too thin.
Shrieking fear and protests of a child being treated.
Conversation overheard that should be whispered.
Beeping and Pinging.
Smells sharp and anticeptic.
The quiet sobs of my daughter.
The surprising comfort of a blanket fresh from the warmer.
Emergency room

I am surprised how anyone can heal in a hospital, with all the noise and carrying on and lack of human warmth...Can you imagine the power healing would take if both human comfort and medicine were in teh same place?
I hope your daughter is okay?!
