We often hear the phrase that "laughter is the best medicine." It usually refers to a friend, family member, or patient that just needs joy in their life to pull them out of a low point (physical, emotional...) As I was surrounded by laughter from children and familiar patients who made me snort with laughter, I began to think about how joy affects me as a healthcare provider. I think that I am better for my patients when I laugh. Joy is as infectious as any disease I've ever encountered.
Although my blog will be short this evening, I wanted to share pictures of the people who made me smile (and laugh) today. Perhaps, it will be "good medicine" for you as well.
