The hospital has a huge aquarium in the surgery waiting room.
Waiting through Dad’s surgery, I watched a touching scene as two fish stood guard over a sick buddy. The sick fish was for the most part floating on his side, but his fins were moving. He was at the back of a large rock. One buddy swam next to him. For most of the time, the other stayed below the rock and guarded the rear approach. Many of the other fish in the aquarium circled, waiting to attack.
It was a beautiful story to watch while waiting for news of the unknown. It was a great reminder of the circle of friends, seen and unseen, that surround us.
