Notes to the SickKids NICU
On one very special wall in the SickKids NICU are dozens of notes from families. Below, we share those real NICU stories and thank you notes as a reminder of the even brighter future a new NICU will offer.
Thank you from baby Ava’s family.
“NICU staff, thank you for helping me through the early days of navigating becoming a medically complex Mom. Everything was so new and scary to me, and I was so lucky to have had such wonderful guidance in those early moments of Ava’s life. I asked endless questions and was always met with patience and love. I couldn’t have done it without you!”
Thank you from baby Chloe’s family.
“We want to thank the incredible staff at SickKids for helping save our daughter’s life. Chloe has been through so much and we don’t know we would be without the exceptional care, love and support that has always been given to Chloe and our family. We are so blessed, and we are forever grateful.
Thank you from baby Ezra’s family.
“We are grateful for the care and support we received while living at SickKids. The team taught us how to catheterize our son, change his bandages post-surgery, kept us calm, and let us be present to love and sing to our boy. They treated him like a person, not a patient.”
