My friend is in the hospital! I want to visit her!

I hope my mom can find a way I can visit my human friend... Her name is Elana and she is 5 years old, she is in the hospital and she is going to be having open heart surgery... frown
She loves dogs and loves me! Here are some photos of us:
me and Elana
getting a hug!

I want to visit her but I don't know if the humans will allow it...
I am a therapy dog but the organizations I am with don't go to visit this hospital... HOWEVER another therapy dog group which I used to train with and took the TDInc test with a long time ago do visits there there. I do have certification with 3 therapy dog groups and also ATTS temperament testing and DSA test and a health certificate...but I don't have membership with the group that visits that hospital.

My mom wants to ask them if there is any way I can go to that hospital and visit my friend because she knows it will make Elana very happy... But my mom isn't sure how to ask them.

I hope all goes well for Elana. I think you should have Elana mom talk to the therapy dog organization first. %)
