We’re thankful for our caring staff throughout the hospital. Mary works hard in our business office, but also takes time to spend with our patients, including Alphonce.

WIP_WeekOctober10-4

Elvis, our intern, walks into the business office with William. “You stole baby William,” we say. Nelson, one of our CUREkids Coordinators, quickly snatches him up, starts playing with him, and then says, “Type, baby, type!”

XhianArtist

Here’s a preview of Xhian’s abstract artwork as he finishes it off with a Hulk sticker!

In clinic, Rena welcomes other patients by sharing toys!

Jehian doesn’t think waiting is a pain when you have books to read!

ZhianBubbles

After several visits to Tebow CURE, Zhian is becoming a bubble-blowing expert!

ChinFred

Physical Therapist Chin shows Fred the first pair of shoes he will ever wear! We think he would have preferred Nikes, but these will ensure he can hit the courts later in life: clubfoot free!

Norhaia

We dare any of you to show us a smile bigger than Norhaia’s! As a bonus, Physical Therapy Intern Lysette says, “She just loves everyone!” Our kind of kid!

NursesTraining

Our nurses spent this week refreshing their knowledge of Pediatric Advanced Life Support and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support.

RalpOR

Although, he’s just double-checking the position of the pin, Ralph looks ready to go to war with Rehj’s broken elbow.

RehjBubbles

Rehj passes some time in the playroom with CUREkids Coordinator Hope Kim. He kept trying to catch them gently, so as not to pop them, but was never successful. It didn’t ruin the fun!

RizzAnnKryzelle

Rizz Ann and Krizylle became fast friends when they came to CURE for surgery in August. They were so thrilled to run into each other at clinic, and were inseparable once again!

ZedrickPreOp

Zedrick’s surgery is a little backwards. Most of these surgeries end in casts, but his started with a set! Dr. Reyes removed them before surgery began, and Zedrick carefully observed every step of the removal process.
