Our Current Avera Children's Champion
Miss Harper came to Avera Children’s for an outpatient procedure. With a change in plans she ended up having to stay for a week in the Pediatric Unit/PICU. Harper displayed her bravery and great attitude during her hospitalization by staying strong and letting the nurses help her feel better. She showed a sense of calm when changing her neck dressing after the nurse turned the dressing into a pretty necklace. Very fashionable! During Harper’s stay she loved playing in the playroom, doing craft projects, puzzles, games, and many more activities. Her favorite game was Don’t Spill the Beans! Harper was quiet but was always kind to everyone she encountered, despite the difficult and unexpected obstacles from prior days. She was very brave while showing her determination throughout her hospitalization. Harper loved her stuffed animals especially her new pink turtle from her big brother. Congrats Harper on becoming Avera Children’s Champ!!! Way to GO!!!
