Jelly fish, Whales and Dophins

My treatment room ceiling is covered in fish- the beany baby kind- so that patients have something to look at while laying back in the chair. The younger patients like to talk to the the whale hanging over their heads, and several patients have donated new additions to our ceiling aquarium. C.T. has been looking for a rainbow fish for over a year, but settled recently on this pink jellyfish. I was thrilled with her thoughtful gift and promised her I'd hang it over the sink where patients
wash up after treatment. It turns out that I'm not the only one excited by my new addition.  In one day four patients commented on my new jelly fish. Now the kids have a new friend to keep them company.

It's intriguing to see how patients entertain themselves in our reception area.  Sometimes they pull out the tablet or phone that Mom keeps in her purse, sometimes their devices travel in their own pockets, Candy Crush at the ready. Often it's our game cube or magazines.  I always smile when I see that they are still intrigued by old fashioned real-life blocks.  Zach was so pleased with his creation that he couldn't wait for his mom to see it, so we preserved it for posterity in this photo.
