All the staff who work on Wayne’s unit are angels but there are special angels among them.
One team (an LPN and care aide) can bathe Wayne so wonderfully that he does not require pre-med.
I stood outside the bathing room and listened – he was laughing and having a good time instead of being so stressed that I could not bare it.
They joke and give him stuff to “play with” in the water.
There was absolutely no resistance during the process until it was time to rinse his hair.
“Hey,, what’s going on. Hey, hey, no, no”.
“All done, Wayne.”
And it was over – - -
