A Parky visits hospital

Hospital here I come
To get my parky treatments plumb

I meet and greet the Parkinson’s nurse
Who over the next few days will be my universe

Along came the speech therapist
Who talked about being a vocalist

Then came the physiotherapist
Who helped me climb Mt Everest

Followed by the occupational therapist
Who applied her skills like a specialist

That night I met the neurologist
Who took plenty of notes like a journalist

The movement disorder neurologist starts some tests
Then makes a request to increase the meds

We do some more testing
Time for some resting

We do some more scans
Time for some more med milligrams

The timing of my meds is important to highlight
To align with the meals helps to stay upright

Spent some time with the Psychiatrist
Now I think I am a pharmacist

So now we have a new baseline
That becomes my new parky lifeline

So long hospital, I have enjoyed my stay
Looking forward to more positive days…
