Playful Processing & Integration

My daughter was present and engaged during my post surgery recovery in 2011. She worked healing magic on me as well as her dolls and lovies.

Today my daughter, aged 6 and headed for her own surgery, visited a most wonderful, child oriented surgery center where she was offered a child’s vantage point on what to expect. Once home, we spent the next several hours acting out the new information using whatever props and subjects we had close at hand.

    love you so much, and love that she has the gift of slow time to absorb, and process. not that it will chase away the butterflies, but it will allow her to have a sense of ownership in the process. much love. xoxo
