"A wonderful,suppportive experience x"

About: Lister Hospital

What I liked

Our daughter is 18 now ,at 3 yrs old she suffered her first grand mal seizure and she went immediatly into status epileptius ....Since that day she has suffered many many more ,lost her memory and nearly died , but the nurses at Lister Hospital Stevenage, fought every step of the way for her,seen her through trying the ketogenic diet,all the drug regimes,all the blood tests,helped her pull through double bronchil pneumonia and her diagnosis for doose syndrome. All those nurses!! All those scary moments !!! All the tears and everystep of the way ~ there they were ~ rushing when needed ,being cautious when needed and always ,but always supportive ~ even now she is a young woman she is being seen by the peadiatric team as she has the mind of a child ~ nurses from the hospital even work at her school and do night duty for sleep ins .....but this year she is to pass onto the adult services ...so here I am saying thank you to every single peadiatric nurse that has worked at the Lister Hospital ,Stevenage ,hertfordshire in the past 15 yrs ~ we are so thankful to you xxxxxxxxx
