Support from others can make us heal faster. Well, that is not any new news. I cannot help but remembering growing up with a different kind of compassion.
When Someone was hospitalized we were many visiting and brought flowers and cards that were filling the patients table.
My mom told me not to bring them home, that was bad luck. So all the flowers were brought to the nurses coffee room.
A nurse told me that today many are allergic to flowers, that is why many hospitals are forbidding flowers. How sad, flowers make you feel good. (If you are not allergic) We patients attend to smile when we see the gorgeous flowers, and we talk about the flowers, instead of sickness. (That comes later in our conversation)
My wonderful children brought in flowers and me and my roommate kept talking about them every day. It was a joy for my (our) healing, looking at the flowers during the day.
Does your hospital allow your patients flowers?
Rehabilitation started, and I was filled with joy– even if it hurts, but it’s positive pain.
Amazing staff at the physio therapy Intermedtris das TherapieZentrum. Gentle and loving, my hand thrives.
However, another therapist that makes wonders, and with the best healing kisses, is from Oregon.
