Alberta Children's Hospital

So, today I had a meeting at the Alberta Children's Hospital with the staff from the Hemophilia Treatment Centre there. The hospital was just beautiful and had so many facilities and play areas. As I walked through the halls of the hospital I couldn't help but think of the year my mom and I spend in the Janeway Children's Hospital           in Newfoundland. My mom and I tried to make the best of it we would take late night wheel chair rides around the hospital, we watched countless movies, made crafts but it was a very difficult time for both of us. By the time I made it to the Hemophilia Clinic I was in tears. It broke my heart to think of what I put my mom through and it hurt to see such cute little children in wheelchairs and hooked up to IV's, it was really hard to see. Looking back on all those hard times as a child I have no idea how I got through it, I know my mom and dad were a huge help and I also had a lot of prayers. Kids are just so cute and sweet I don't think they should get sick, illness should be for adults only. Now that I'm all grown up I do feel it's important to help other children who may be in the same position I was. The meeting with the staff went really well. We all want the same thing, to make life easier for people with Hemophilia. We came up with a lot of ideas and I look forward to working them! Another thing I am looking forward to is the Hemophilia Society Christmas Party this Saturday, we've spent a lot of time planning it and I hope everyone has a really good time.
