Thanks so much for your visit and your comment. Yes, we know of Patch Adams here as well (of course many only know how he was portrayed in the movie by Robin Williams). The spontaneity of this activity is what really inspired me to post it. People who care for children have to maintain that spontaneity, and be willing to connect to their own inner child--that helps the healthcare worker be more effective, and also can help ease some of the stress put on families as well as staff during serious and acute or chronic illnesses.
