“Arnette has coped very well for something so hard and painful.”
Arnette was admitted into Mercy Children’s Hospital & Clinics after suffering from abdominal pain for more than a week. When she arrived at the hospital, she was diagnosed with a perforated appendix that would require multiple procedures to treat, including a PICC insertion.
Despite the scary situation and pain, Arnette maintained a patient, mature, and sweet attitude, and was cooperative and kind to her doctors and caregivers.
It is with great pride that we honor Arnette’s courage and optimism by acknowledging her as a Kids Wish Network and Mercy Children’s Hospital & Clinics Hero of the Month. Congratulations Arnette!
