Premise: Halloween Night in a Hospital
Clifton had organized a costume parade for the kids who were in the hospital for Halloween. Our manager, Troy had let us know that a benefactor had left money to be used up by Halloween night. So, Clifton immediately volunteered our ward to help spend the money and bring a little joy to the kids. Irene and Lucille had helped each child come up with costume unique to them. Katie, Johnny, and I were responsible for gathering all the necessary supplies to make the costumes and help construct them. Katie was finishing up a gondola to attach to Antonia’s wheelchair and Johnny was putting the finishing touches on his centaur wheelchair with moving legs for Edmund. Some of the parents were suppose to be arriving soon with a few more personal touches from them and other friends and family. Lucille called for Katie to help with the inlet of parents that was overwhelming her. Irene was interweaving with the parents coming in trying to make it to the nurse’s station to grab the peppermint treats for the adults before she forgot to hand them out. Edmund’s mother and Antonia’s father showed ready to decorate the one room to look like the night sky at twilight. Wanting to throw their children the best Halloween party, Antonia’s father sang songs, with Lambaba being requested repeatedly and Edmund’s mother made sure to plenty of fun crafts. All around it was a very placid event and I couldn’t have asked for a better Halloween night in a hospital.
