March 11, 2017 will mark 10 years since my daughter had an emergency appendectomy at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. She was only three years old at the time. After a week of being sick and several doctor's appointments and emergency room visits we thank God that an ER nurse finally diagnosed her properly! It is very unusual for a young child to have a burst appendix, but she did. She was immediately rushed to Boston where a pediatric surgeon was waiting for her. After her surgery she stayed in the PICU for three days and then moved to a regular pediatric room for 8 days. Everyone at the hospital was incredibly good to us. My husband and I were able to stay with our daughter the entire time. They even provided a little room with a bed for us while our daughter was in the PICU (although I chose to sleep on the chair in the room each night!) The nurses were wonderful. They were very patient with our daughter. We are thankful for the children's room staff and volunteers that brought her games, books, and movies to play with in her room. When she gained strength we took her to play in the children's play room and brought her for rides in the wagon. I donate to Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center to thank them for taking care of my daughter and for their current and future patients.
The next stop on the Blog Hop is my friend Elaine over at Kitty Kitty Kindergarten.
