Scarlett’s journey with Children’s started at the age of two. What started as an Emergency Room visit continued to now being a “frequent flyer” in the hospital.
Scarlett is currently four and at the age of two and a half she was diagnosed with severe Crohn’s disease. Having a child with a life altering illness is tough. You need a community to rally around you and with you.
From the start of her emergency visit we knew we stepped into a hospital that was going to ease our nerves, comfort our daughter, be compassionate to us and Scarlett, and provide excellent, knowledgeable care. Children’s cares. Scarlett receives infusions now on a regular basis in the Infusion Suite. She also is regularly going to outpatient appointments and inpatient as well. The nurses all know her name and love her like she is one of their own. As a mom, there is no greater comfort when you yourself physically can’t take of your child’s needs. They are careful with her and calm. They listen to our concerns. The staff makes it almost pleasant to come to her appointments, rather than dwelling on hard times.
Children’s hospital comes highly recommended by our family. We are so thankful to have them in our lives and a HUGE part of Scarlett’s journey.
