Well after 37 years of working at one location (I retired shortly after I was dx) I felt like I was going to the 1st day of school when I went into our local hospital today to see about being a volunteer. I had filled out a request over the internet and got a call from them to come in. I went in this morning, the Hospital is only 2 miles from our home. I had my meeting today and the lady thinks I should do just fine. Looks like I can do from 4 to 12 hours a week which will allow me some time for them and for myself. I was getting bored just sitting at home waiting for Diane to get home from work so Im hoping this will help with that issue along with helping the Hospital. Looks like I will be the one greeting folks and directing them or taking them to their destination, maybe deliver flowers or what ever may come up. Most of you know by now I use crutches and a wheelchair so I would be using the chair in the hospital, at least it will be accessable. So its now time to be a volunteer and I think I may do ok, time will tell.
