Trick or Treat - Halloween

“This is my husband, Mike, in the picture. The one dressed up as a vampire. He was about 8 according to my in-laws. That’s his grandmother, Linda, to the right laying in the hospital bed. On Halloween day, Linda started experiencing some pains and had to be rushed to the hospital and was told she needed surgery immediately. Being the loving grandmother that she is, she requested to see the grandchildren before going into the operating room. Though Mike’s mother informed Linda that he was already in costume and probably wouldn’t be appropriate for him to come to the hospital like that, Linda insisted she see all the grandchildren. Though Mike’s other siblings are out of shot, every time we come across this photo, we always bust out laughing. Who wouldn’t want to be visited by a short vampire right before surgery?”

    I like this. There’s no question of WHY it happened. It’s not in bad taste. Yet it’s still awkward.

    I think this is awesome. I bet Grandma loved it.

    Well I hope Grandma came through surgery okay… this certainly must have put her in good spirits, at least.

    Well better to see a vampire than someone dressed as the Grim Reaper. Imagine that lurking in the halls of a hospital. Even a pint sized one.

      I used to work at a nursing home where we were highly encouraged to dress in costume for Halloween. One of the nurses actually dressed as the grim reaper. Yeah.
      On a side note one year on Halloween my grandma was in the hospital and ticked as hell because she didn’t want to be there. I brought my kids in to see her in their costumes and she was happier. Then they put her in the nursing home where I worked with the grim reaper…. Then grandma was REALLY cranky.
