Beds and Balloons in the Playroom 


The other great thing about the Child Life Specialists, "the play people", is that they'll come to visit you in your hospital room. They'll bring you all kinds of neat things, like stories, crafts, games and other toys, and the best thing is, they'll stick around to play with you. Later in the day, they'll do their best to bring you to the playroom, even if they have to move you WITH your bed! The beds have these wheels on the bottom of them, so it isn't as hard as it must seem to you! Can you find the bed in this picture?
