Last Friday the nurse took her off of her ventilator. When they were giving her a breathing treatment, she grabbed it and helped the nurse hold it.
We have been here for a few days now and I feel Akron Children’s saved my daughter’s and my own life by taking amazing care of her.
She had been hooked up to a ventilator for 3 days. It’s scary for me but I know she’s in an amazing place. Every nurse and doctor she has had is an angel to me for taking care of my world and doing everything possible for her to get better.
Hopefully we won’t be here much longer. I would like to say thank you to everyone who’s has helped her. I am truly blessed.
As part of our year-long anniversary celebration, we’ll be telling the story of Akron Children’s through the eyes of past and present employees, doctors, donors, volunteers and patient families. We encourage you to share your own memories and stories about us.
