I didn't realize that I would be practicing "what not to say to some one in a hospital", so soon. A new friend ,who shares so many of my life experiences with me, is not having a happy time. Before I stepped into the lounge at the critical care unit,
I did think about what I would say, or not say. On one hand, I thought that talking about what was going on around her, might be a good release. Then maybe, we shouldn't talk about this, but just sit quietly. I walked into the lounge and my first reaction
was to hug for my friend and her daughter. . That was all we needed to do.
