Family Separation vs. George Takei’s WWII Internment

June 20th 2018

“At least during my internment…, I was not taken from my parents.

“I cannot for a moment imagine what my childhood would have been like had I been thrown into a camp without my parents.

That this is happening today fills me with both rage and grief: rage toward a failed political leadership who appear to have lost even their most basic humanity, and a profound grief for the families affected.”          ~George Takei

Family Separation: No Words

June 19th 2018

There are no words to describe this horror [54 seconds]:

 

May the torture these children -and parents- experience be visited upon every last Trump Supporter who does not decry the inhumanity of this bogus policy enforcement.

Hospital Clowning: Family Separation

Tuesday, June 19th 2018

9fededc1-c30a-4ebd-9eea-d7db0feba1b5

Catching a moment of fresh air during lunch with the fabu Dr. Bafu.

 

Dr. Bafu is so wonderful to know and to work with.  Sometimes he is so funny and I am doing practically nothing as I observe the scene.  Fortunately I am learning to relax and have faith in these moments of not knowing.  Then there are other times when we are singing together and it is practically divine.   And there are other times still when a patient enjoys blowing him off and embracing dear Dr. Be Bopper instead.   Not every clown is for every body, but we got lots of love and fun for anybody.  Oh, and I got routines for dogs yes I do.

We are entertaining a child in pre-op when a gurney gets going from the bay next to us.  The patient is a little three year old fair-haired girl in a big clean bed surrounded by five clean, calm, gowned-up health care professionals rolling her down the hall to surgery.  The mom and dad stay behind and watch their baby go as she starts crying, “Mom-my!  M-O-M-M-Y!  Mo-o-o-mmy!!

Her cries seem to dampen down by the the medications taking effect as she floats down the hall.

Lucky girl.

I think reparative surgery is an excellent reason to separate a family.

Momentarily.
