Y’all Better Recognize
You guys know I can’t say enough about how awesome Nolan’s care was at Levine Children’s Hospital. They are a first-class hospital bursting at the seams with amazing staff. Well I am really excited to share some great news with you:
Yes, LCH was ranked as one of the best Children’s Hospitals by US News & World Report in 5 specialities, which includes Cardiology! Yeeeeeaaaaah buddy!
Last week we were invited to the announcement of the rankings at Levine Children’s Hospital, which is always an honor when they choose to think of us and include us in celebrations like this. It was great to see heart families we know, and even to meet new heart families.
I know that no one wants to have their child in a Children’s Hospital…it’s a really tough thing to go through…but Levine Children’s Hospital is the cream of the crop and we’re fortunate that they’re right in our back yard. There was a point during my lengthy unemployment where we briefly entertained the idea of moving if we found good job prospects, but it never happened and we stayed put. If we were to move away and THEN found out we’d have a child with HLHS, I’d dread to think that options would be available wherever we moved. There are lots of great Children’s Hospitals throughout the US, and thank God for that, but I’m glad we have an excellent one right here. They treat us like family and it’s a special feeling to know you’re not just a number. And – my goodness – their lobby has chairs shaped like bacon. LIKE…BACON. Win!
I’m proud to say my child received awesome care at Levine Children’s Hospital, and I’m confident telling people that it’s an awesome place to be should your child need care. So keep up the good work, LCH! We’re proud of you!
