Suddenly...in the hospital.

On Saturday night all of a sudden my son had great pain and more symptoms that made us take him to hospital at once. He is fine now. He had a little "stone" in his kidney which fell after three days. Spending three days and nights in the hospital with my only child in pain and two people dying on the ward from various reasons was a shocking experience. Thank God for us everything went well.
 My thoughts are with the people who lost their loved ones there. And I am thankful to all the doctors and nurses of the 1st Internal Ward of the AHEPA hospital who inspite the salary and staff reductions they still work hard for all their patients. Special thanks goes to the doctor at the emergency room who realised that Miltos' case was serious and kept testing him and finally taking him up to the Internal Ward.
As always I tried to find beauty around me.
Lovely stained glass windows in the hospital chapel.

 (For all my American followers)

 Works of art inside the hospital.


And finally a funny side. The room we were in was the one where prisoners who need to be hospitalized are put! Of course we didn't have to stay behind bars!That was one more experience though!
