Jacee continues to demonstrate that she loves children. There were only 3 patients to meet; 2 in regular rooms and one in the ICU. Jacee’s size is not optimal for this facility; she is too small for the patients to reach her from their bed, and she is too big to get into bed with them. I had her do her “up” command which means to put her front legs on the side of the bed where the kids can pet her head. That worked pretty good, but she can only stay in that position for a minute or two before she gets tired.
She also met about 20 different staff members, plus a large group of medical students from Dominican University. Everyone loved her.
Jacee’s behavior was much improved over last week. The facility would love to have her back, and I would be happy to return there.
