Oliver’s Travels: May 17, 2018

Dear Journal,

Today the Cardiology unit asked me to stop by and see them… I’ve never got to meet them before! They told me that they’ve seen me on Facebook and have always wanted to meet me in person.

It’s official. I’m a celebrity dog.

One lady told me that I was the pretty and happiest dog that she has EVER seen.  They all loved having me hang around their offices and told me that I could even stay with them if I wanted.

Juan said I couldn’t. He’s no fun.

We then went across the hall to see if anyone from Diagnostic Imaging Services wanted to say hello. They didn’t seem as excited to see me. Only one person came out to pet me. 🙁

It’s OK though, not everyone is a dog person Juan says!We made our way over to the patient rooms upstairs, and of course, saw my best friends in Reflections. One person said that I remind her of her own dog, and didn’t leave my side the whole time I was there. I liked her a lot.

After visiting Reflections, I wanted to see if there were any new babies to see!

Unfortunately, there wasn’t and I was told that I couldn’t press the lullaby button that goes to the entire hospital. As you probably know from my last journal entry, I heard a VERY scary noise that spooked me during my last visit. As soon as I got into the Hospice hallway, I froze. I did NOT want to go through that trauma again.

I felt so bad. I wanted to visit with more patients, but I just couldn’t get that out of my head.

Juan decided that he wouldn’t make me go any further, so we went to Hancock Internal Medicine upstairs to pay them a visit.

They always make me stay for at least 10 minutes to get petted. I’m not complaining. I also love running into my fans in the hallway.  Although it was a short visit once again, I still have a great time seeing all of my friends or soon to be friends. I’m so glad that I’m able to help people feel better, even for just a second.

Keep up with my adventures and see what I’m up to around the hospital! Hopefully, I’ll get to meet even more people next time that I visit. I sure hope so.
