I want to check-in since it has been a while since my last post, but I have been coming and making balloons for kids here at the Children’s Health Center every week. I have been making various balloons for the patients from flower bracelets to blasters. While sitting in the office, I am getting exposure to the way a medical office operates which is fascinating. I have also been given the opportunity to watch as nurses check patients when they come in and I have gone inside patient rooms a few times. This experience was definitely both fun and interesting as I got to see more than just the scheduling and computer-work; I could see the nurses take vitals of the patients etc.
So far, ballooning here has been a good experience and I hope it continues and I learn a lot more that I didn’t think I would.
