Cecelia is a 6 year-old girl who was admitted with a ruptured appendix. Cecelia`s stay was longer than planned because she developed abscesses, which are very painful. Throughout her entire hospitalization she was cooperative, and pleasant, even when it took everything she had. Just prior to going home, Cecelia was asked to learn how to swallow pills. Instead of whining, she gave it a try and had the skill mastered in only a few attempts.
It is with great pride that we honor Cecelia`s courage and positivity by acknowledging her as a Kids Wish Network and Kaiser Permanente Roseville Hero of the month. Congratulations Cecelia!
