I am really thankful for all the care, attention and love
June 03, 2013
On Nov. 15, 2012, my little Angel came into the world. I was the happiest mom in the world but I knew something was wrong. At two days old he was diagnosed with a bowel obstruction (atresia). Angel arrived on a helicopter at Driscoll Children's Hospital. He had surgery and we spent a month at the hospital. I am really thankful for all the care, attention and love they gave to my little Angel. Three months later, we went back for his last surgery. Everything went well, thank God, and thanks to the doctors and sweet nurses in the neonatal intensive care unit. Thanks, Driscoll Children's Hospital. You all really do miracles.

Driscoll's Teddy Bear Hospital is a chance for patients to be the doctors
April 08, 2014
WHAT: Patients will be the doctors tomorrow during a Teddy Bear Hospital organized by the Stripes Child Life Program at Driscoll Children's Hospital. The event allows children to become more familiar with the medical equipment and procedures involved in their treatment. They'll choose their teddy bear, give it a name and, with the help of Child Life Specialists and other Driscoll staff, measure its height and weight, place an IV and draw labs, give it an X-ray, attach an anesthesia mask for surgery and put an arm or leg in a cast. The Teddy Bear Hospital and the Stripes Child Life Program at Driscoll Children's Hospital are made possible by a $1 million donation from Stripes convenience stores.
WHEN: 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, 2014
WHERE: Driscoll Children's Hospital auditorium, 3533 S. Alameda St.
