Michele recently had a scheduled conference with John's nurse at Active Day. She brought Jazzy along, as they all enjoy seeing her. As soon as she came in, the manager Maria swooped Jazzy up to take her to visit with the patients while Michele was in her meeting. When Michele was done and went looking for Jazzy, this is where she found her. She was on Maria's desk helping her with her paperwork. Maria had also taken her for a walk to the pond with some of the able-bodied patients since it was a beautiful day. Fun was had by all!
