Hospitals have certainly changed from the rather sterile looking institutions of the past. But, regardless of how simple or beautifully they are decorated and landscaped, hospitals are still places you visit and usually feel either happy or anxious.
It is always pure joy to welcome a new member to your family. What is more fun that greeting a new child or grandchild – such hope for life.
On the other hand, it is more challenging to visit a loved one who is seriously ill because it may be the end of life.
Whatever the reason for visiting a hospital, it is comforting to know that the many members of the hospital staff still work hard every day to help mothers adjust to their new babies, patients regain their strength from a serious illness or recover from surgery, and most important of all hopefully discharge them to return home to their families.
For that, I say a sincere thank you to each and every one of them.
