Playing Pretend At The Hospital With Spotify

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Today, I assisted my Beloved up and down a whole flight of stairs. My role is to stand behind her with my hand on a gait belt going up and stand in front as she goes down.

That is a lot of progress from December second of last year.

We are doing what our new normal is at the moment. Simply, therapy by day, wheelchair adventures by night.

Visiting hours are from 8 AM to 8 PM, so there are windows of opportunity, and inopportune endeavors, in between occupational therapy.

Between 6 and 8 pm, We travel the halls adventuring while blaring tunes from Spotify. We have pretended to

play Mario Kart,

We swaggered around as pirates,

Delivered Gifts,

Lived the hospital life with Alex from Russia

Welcome to CRAZY CLINIC. I am Alex Markovich, the author of this blog, which I start on January 1st, 2022. I am 43 years old (born in 1978), I live in Russia. For over fifteen years, I have been creating various online and offline projects, which mainly focus on poetry, painting, photography and design.   [โ€ฆ]


And we played our favorite pretend… Mission Impossible

This is the best. We start by playing this:

Then, we roll around breaking all the rules we can without really doing anything wrong. Here are some examples:

Pretending to Use The Staff Elevator

Simulation Of Departing From Authorized Areas

Escape Planning

Keeping the morale high is important. I never thought I would play pretend in the hospital with my Beloved.
