My World # 24

This is my posting for the My World meme . It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Last week there were over 120 people showing their worlds to us. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Here is part of 'My World'.

This is an important part of my recovery at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna, Ohio. This is the main entrance to the hospital. It has a fairly large campus.
They were honored as one of the 99 best places to work in NE Ohio. People often rush just to visit the place. I was going to say that people were dying to get in but thought it might not fit right.
This is the new heart wing, it is right next to Emergency where I started this experience. The windows to the left under the portico is where I go to exercise.
Here I am hooked up to a heart monitor and walking on the treadmill. You do 4 exercises for 10 minutes each and are monitored the whole time. My heart is on the bottom right and was bouncing around today. I think I must have had a bad connection. I wore my Ohio State Buckeyes shirt for today's exercise. You can see I was going really fast, only walking of course. My daughter is friends with one of the nurses. She had been on vacation so I met Mavis for the first time today.
Have fun visiting the places around the world.

Ugh, hospitals! Have spent far too much time in them in the last few years, both as a patient and a visitor. But we are lucky to have them to help us regain our health. Yours looks like a very nice facility.
