Children in Hospitals

I learned this week that the child of some old friends had to undergo major reconstructive surgery.  While sharing my thoughts and well-wishes with his parents, memories came rushing back of the scary week our daughter spent in a pediatric intensive care unit with septic shock from bacterial tracheitis.  She recovered, thank goodness.  After she was well, I wrote down some of my thoughts about the experience of having a child in the hospital.  Some of what resulted appears at the “Hospital Poems” link on the Poetry page.
