Hospice Magic

March 29th, 2011

Photo by Nelson

The Style Crone is impressed.  In less than one hour Nelson’s pain was under control and a new medication regimen has improved his disrupted sleep pattern, his symptoms have been addressed, and his energy level is at a place where he is back behind the camera with a few playful comments as an added bonus.  Now we’re talking!  This is a model for healthcare that I can believe in.  We have been treated with respect, we have expressed our opinions without retaliation, and empathy is flowing like a river through our sanctuary.  We are experienced healthcare secret shoppers with over six years of intense and intimate observations that would shock even the most seasoned observer.  So burgundy on gray is The SC’s theme for the day in celebration of a system that fits like a fine vintage leather glove during a time when a crisis can be a moment away.

    Oh, I’m so glad you’ve found some effective medical help. The hospice folks were wonderful during my mother’s illness.

    I love the textures in your jacket and scarf!

    The steely gray of your jacket and hat seems most appropriate!


    My dear Judith, this is the photo I was looking for, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Tell Nelso how fantastic it is, for me.
    I can see you, your face and what you are wearing.
    I am so glad that you are cared so kindly.

    hee hee, from what i’ve heard those hospice people know their sh7t! and thank goodness they do! “We are experienced healthcare secret shoppers with over six years of intense and intimate observations that would shock even the most seasoned observer.” ay, i’ve had more than my share of experience in this arena, & you speak the truth. So it’s that much more i’m sure you appreciate your ‘magicians’!

    good lord woman, is that a peek of periwinkle lining on that jacket sleeve? as if your look could get any more outrageously gorgeous! yowie! i’m with Sacramento on this closer look – we can see the blue of your eyes poppin’, and the snaps on the collar and sleeves. so very nice! i hope you and your ‘personal paparazzo’ have a nice night, steph
