Duckling swimming in pond, Hershey PA

I went to Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center for 2 surgeries in June. I ended up having 5 surgeries in 7 weeks. The hotel we stayed at had a beautiful pond with a flock of ducks. Over the summer we saw 4 generations of ducklings born. Sitting in the sun in the wheelchair was the best medicine ever. My mother even put some duck food on my shoes...they nibbled on my toes!
