State: Brooklyn, NY
Facility: Maimonides Medical Center
Four-year old Chaya was admitted with a bad pneumonia infection. Chaya has been hospitalized for almost several weeks, going in and out of procedures, and has been a trooper the entire time! She has sat bravely for multiple IV placements and blood draws, CT scans and most recently has had surgery to remove fluid from her lungs. Recently, she was in the intensive care unit and will most likely require another procedure shortly. Although Chaya is not enjoying being in the hospital, she has definitely proven herself to be one of the bravest 4-year olds patients at Maimonides!
