Cincinnati Childrens Hospital
How they saved my life!
When I was five years old I developed strep throat with a high
fever. I remember trying to move my legs and I couldn't. My mom
and grandma drove me to Cincinnati Childrens Hospital. I had the
the best doctors reviewing my case and trying to figure out what
was wrong. I can remember staring at their cartoon walls as I
passed through the hallway. It seemed to make me feel better.
They would show me with a animal or doll what test they were
going to do on me. All of the nurses and doctors were so caring.
Because of them was why I wanted to be a nurse and I am a
nurse today. Cincinnati Childrens Hospital never gave up on me.
They tried different things to make me better. I will never forget
the lady that would come and read to me everyday. I always
looked forward to her arrival. They would let my mom and dad
stay whenever they wanted to. At first, they feared that I would
never walk again. But with different test, medicines and prayers,
I learned to walk again. It took a couple of months and I
remember the challenge. Even though I was 5 years old, I still
remember like it was yesterday. I am now 32 yeas and old and
I am doing great! II am greatful towards all the staff at Cincinnati
Childrens Hospital. They will have my appreciation forever!
