Motherly Love

A mother and son were admitted to RML at the same time. Due to the complexity of their medical conditions, they were unable to see one another. They could not talk on the phone or get out of bed to connect, despite being in the same hospital.

The son was determined to get back on his feet. He worked hard to get out of bed and gain the strength to walk again. In coordination with his clinical and therapy teams, he planned a surprise visit to his mom.

Imagine the joy and pride she felt as she watched her son, who had been confined to a hospital bed, walk into her hospital room. It was an emotional reunion with many happy tears.

Day in and day out, we are grateful to serve patients like this mother and son duo, who inspire us in many ways. Thank you to the patients and staff who make moments like this possible.
