GOSH I've had a hug
It’s a crazy, mixed up world. We teach Stan to say hello to strangers, shake hands with friends and he can hug close friends and family. So we’re at Great Ormond Street and he rushes up to a nurse and squeezes the life out of her. She says: “That’s the first cuddle I’ve had since I started working here.” A unique and special moment; but it was WRONG in the great ‘to hug or not to hug’ debate. Oh well. Bigger picture? His heart check went well. The nurse’s moment of job satisfaction is a reminder that the people who work at GOSH really are everything you expect them to be. Lifesavers in every sense of the word.
