I sure am missing these two a lot! While they love Boston, it’s just a tad far away sometimes.

It was national Neonatal Nurse’s Day on Saturday and while my sister isn’t a NICU nurse, she is a cardiac ICU nurse at Boston Children’s. She does work with brand new little ones, sometimes the sickest of the sick. But more than that, she supports the families, rather she cares for them so well, they often leave calling her friend.
- - -
She has been bitten, cried in her car when she saw one too many child abuse cases in Dallas, and purchased shoes that can be cleaned easily (please infer the reasoning for me 😉).

I don’t know what your personal definition of a hero is, but mine eats cereal for dinner, runs on little sleep for days, and just so happens to also be called my incredible sister. ❤️ Tag someone you look up to!

Overwhelmed, Tired, Scared, Uncertain?

Then this is my electronic hug to you. I reconnected with my grief coach last week. It’s been over three years since we spoke. When I saw her name, I started bawling- knots in my stomach and lost my breath. Our first exchange of words left me in a puddle. I can talk grief, loss, recovery until I’m blue in the face but when I got a glimpse of the million shattered pieces of me that desperately sat in her office, it’s like reunion with a part of myself that I don’t think of day to day. I saw my face, genuinely confused how the world could continue on despite my loss and convinced I would never be happy again. .

I have been entrusted by so many with their heartaches and struggles and challenges and it reminds me that at different times and in different ways we are all carrying something. If your weight feels a little too heavy right now, I am sending you an electronic hug. A big, giant, I know you can do this, electronic hug.
.

You’re so much stronger than you realize and if you don’t believe me look at that little smile. Leyden’s face reminds me every day - as her mama I’m proud to let her remind you, too. You got this.

Boston Children’s Gala last night! What an amazing opportunity and event to attend. #bostonchildrens #goodtimes #travelnursingadventures

#CCAM Day 11: How YOU can make a difference! Spreading awareness, volunteering, and donating are huge ways to help!

We also accept donations of valuable items, or tickets to events, which are sold with 100% of the proceeds going to Sophia’s Fund. Make sure you know the impact your donation makes! ACS only gives 1 PENNY of ever dollar raised to childhood cancer. Other organization we love where you can give your time or donations are @gocampsunshine, a beautiful retreat for the whole family for fun, support, and respite, or @bostonchildrens, @stbaldricks, and @stjude!

We are proud to announce our 12th Annual Halloween Costume Drive! 🎃Please help us create a festive & candy-filled Halloween for the children at Boston Children’s Hospital. 🍫🍫 We will be accepting donations of new Halloween costumes and accessories now through October 17th! Please see the display in our lobby!

And just like that I’m back at it. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love school, learning, and my patients. I am so happy to be able to go to school (even if I’m running on 3 hours of sleep 😴) and experience my education with some of the most prestigious affiliations. What an absolute blessing. #NEVERSTOPDREAMING

💛First day of 4th grade yesterday for @josephsmiracle - a very emotional day for me, that I missed for him, as I was in-flight, 😭returning back from moving @j______________d out to @duadmission - 😇AND it was also the 4-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Joseph’s first Brain Tumor diagnosis yesterday.
🙏Joseph’s due for follow- ups this month, for both the brain tumor and the kidney mass both most recently found almost one-year ago. I can’t believe it’s almost been 1-year since his last diagnosis, his second brain tumor.
🙏Please keep Joseph in your prayers.
🙌What a year it has been...

Boston harbor cruise #bostonchildrens #fireworks #neurology #workouting 🛳🎆🧠

“I feel bravest when I pretend to ride a unicorn!” Hey all, like to introduce you to my buddy Genevieve, she’s 4 and has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome is a Congenital Heart Defect in which the left ventricle never develops. Without surgical intervention, an affected infant would die within the first week of life. Children with this condition are faced with a series of 3 open heart surgeries that take place within their first 3 years of life. This three staged approach supports the body to survive with a two chamber heart until inevitably needing a heart transplant in early adulthood. I’m pairing up with the Heart Warrior Foundation and asking these gems of kids what makes them feel brave and then turning that into an image for them & also to be auctioned later to raise money for the foundation. Please consider making a donation, LINK IN BIO! The Heart Warrior foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports, educates, raises funds and awareness for families affected by CHDs. Thank you!

Chunky boy. Day +9 he’s starting to smile more and play more. His WBC has come up so hopefully his ANC will follow and he can go home soon. #pediatriccancer #stemcelltransplant #autologuscelltransplant #bostonchildrens #atrtsucks #atrtawareness #cureatrt

Medicine is a practice and here is proof that practice makes perfect.
This toddler is Gtube free!! He was happy to donate his feeding pump to another EA/TEF baby on 10 East (even if his face doesn’t show it in slide 3).
Thanks a million times over to The Esophageal and Airway Treatment Center and to 10 East of @BostonChildrens for fixing our son and for giving us the knowledge and resources to continue to treat him.

Home!
Well, in Rockport, there is some work being done on our house that needs to be finished before we go home... Bye bye #bostonchildrens

Grace Ellin Medeiros chose to join us 26 minutes past her due date at 12:26am on 8/19. This baby decided to make us dive head first into parenthood as she was diagnosed with an undetected congenital heart defect within an hour of being born. Grace has gone through more in 6 days than we have gone through in our lifetime including open heart surgery. Grace has been a little rockstar and is doing great. To every person who has reached out to us, kept us in your prayers THANK YOU we cannot express how thankful we are for your support. To the Doctors, surgeons and nurses in the Cardiac NICU thank you for caring for our daughter as if she was your own. And to my incredible husband who sat with me through 26 hours of labor with no sleep then went directly to Boston Children’s to be with our daughter when I couldn’t you are my lifeline. This has been a humbling experience but this strong baby will overcome this. 💕🎀 #thiskidinspires #bostonchildrens #cardiacnicu #Gracesjourney #theamazingGrace #bestdressedbabyinthenicu @poshpeanut thank you for my bow 🎀#poshpeanut
