I spent my afternoon, as usual, visiting children at the infectious diseases unit of a city hospital. Our special room is the one where they place children born to HIV+ moms who are not sure whether they want to keep their children or not. The children are being treated to help reduce the odds that the disease will be passed on to them.
Besides these little ones, this room is also where they place HIV+ orphans who have a secondary illness — cold, cough, whatever.
Typically I feed, hug, kiss, talk to, dance with the precious ones we find there.
Our house guests are always invited to accompany me and join in the fun! So today I had the pleasure of introducing JC to two special little girls. A father of soon-to-be FIVE, he is a natural…not to mention that he is a good sport wearing our most masculine(?!) of nurse smocks.
Any takers for a hospital visit?
