Since leaving Seattle Children’s Hospital in August after Luella’s initial stay, we have returned 13 times for various appointments and tests. It’s a 1.5-hour drive I don’t mind doing because of the unrivaled care and support we receive there (and I also like practicing songs for karaoke in the privacy of my car).
Every person we have interacted with, from the cleaning crew to the head of the Pulmonary Department, has been respectful, empowering, and compassionate. Parking is easy to find, we’re greeted and directed to the appropriate place as soon as we walk in the door, appointments run on-time, and given the level of detail our specialists remember about Luella between appointments, I am almost convinced that she is their only patient. And no big deal, but their doctors and nurses literally saved her life.
So yeah, we’re kind of SCH superfans.
With that, here are some pictures from our last two-day stint of appointments. And no, we have not yet run into Russell Wilson (although not for a lack of trying/hoping/fantasizing).
Up next for Luella: feeding therapy, ophthalmology, and neuro-development appointments this month. She’s also looking forward to the Seahawks winning the NFC championship and spending a long weekend at Mt. Baker!
