Still valid

A staff member let me know one of our patients had "expired."

I thanked him for letting me know our patient had died.

Memberships and warranties expire (to end or no longer be valid).

People die (to pass from physical life).

Exercising my mouth

I came across a note, by a Recreational Therapist, in a medical record on a patient.

The patient was a 93 year-old male.

"Talking and reminiscing" were noted in the section entitled "Recreational activities performed today."

My wife thinks I talk too much sometimes and I don't disagree with her.

Starting now, however, I'll just gently remind her that I'm not just talking; I'm recreating!
