Anyone that knows my family knows that we have had a very personal experience with a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (CMNH). Over two years ago, my baby girl started out with croup and RSV but within weeks was on a ventilator. The doctors were unsure what was going on and so many specialists were brought in to see her. It was literally weeks of not know what was happening with Jemma before she coded on the table and had to be put on a respirator. I was scared beyond anything I had ever felt before and wasn’t sure what was in the future for my baby, or if she even had one.
The CMNH we were at not only saved my baby’s life but did so much for me and my children too. They did studies on Jemma to try to see what happened because it was so extremely rare for a child to have what she did. They provided me hours of education and support throughout her time in the hospital. They never let me feel lost or like my baby’s care was the most important job they had to do. I credit my baby girl being alive to day to a CMNH. We know, without doubt, that Jemma would not be alive today if she hadn’t been at the hospital she was at. The doctors she needed were not even available elsewhere, so the care they provided was only available at that hospital.
