Pushing for family-centered hospital care

Tallahassee trip

Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m passionate about two things in life: My family and the care my son receives at Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando. We spend a great deal of time at the hospital — both inpatient and outpatient…

To hospital or not to hospital?

J.P. and Karina snuggle

It’s that time of year, and J.P. appears to be battling something just as cold and flu season arrives. Just before I was supposed to wake up and run Wednesday morning, J.P. could be heard over his monitor, and he just didn’t sound right….

Friday Fun: Start your engines

Patient with car

It’s the beginning of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, and from the looks of Interstate 4, many people are already heading out of town. For me, it will be three days of work after taking off so much time for Canine Companions for Independence…

Diaper trouble prompts change in plans

Karina in hospitl bed

Believe it or not, J.P. was back at the hospital Wednesday after going 20 hours without a wet diaper. I’ve learned from my many hospital stays that you can tell nurses about many issues with a child, but nothing seems to be taken as…

Disappointment abounds

J.P. sick

I’m disappointed. I’m really disappointed. I’m sad. I’m worried. I’m envious. I’m tired. I’m wondering how what I had hoped would be a bucket-list experience was decimated before my very eyes. At the same time, I’m thankful to the entire staff at Canine Companions…

Karina visits J.P. before discharge

Karina visits hospital

J.P. tolerated his feeds well and was able to be discharged Wednesday afternoon. It was a really interesting day because Karina was able to spend the day with J.P. in his hospital room. I was very happy with the way she behaved in the…
