    Normally we dont allow monkeys in our hospital, but we made a special exception today for 5-year-old Jaxson. Dont you just love his Halloween costume? Jaxson had liver failure and is currently recovering from a liver transplant. Mom said, Jaxson has been inpatient at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin for four months and we are hoping to go home soon. Its been hard watching Jaxson go through everything, but he is tough, and the doctors, nurses and staff here are so loving and caring. They are doing everything they can to make his experience easier and to help him have fun while he is here. We snapped this picture of Jaxson with nurse Angela. Stay strong, Jaxson! #halloween

    We snapped this cute picture of 3-year-old Juan having fun with the Cat in the Hat (nurse Krista) in our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit today. Our staff will do whatever it takes to make Halloween special for our patients. Juan has been cared for by specialists in our Neurosciences Center since he was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was just 3 months old. Right now, our team is monitoring his brain activity around the clock to determine the best treatment plan to manage his specific type of seizures. Mom said, Were here because we want to learn why Juan began having seizures again and what treatment options are available for him. Juan loves Dr. Seuss, so he was excited to see nurse Krista dressed as the Cat in the Hat today. Everyone at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin goes out of their way to make this place feel like home. Thank you! Stay strong, Juan! #halloween #epilepsy

    Sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest difference. We snapped this cute picture of 17-month-old Thomas comforted by his identically dressed stuffed moose just before he went into the operating room for his scheduled surgery. This is just one example of how our doctors, nurses and staff go above and beyond to make sure every child feels comfortable and safe. Thomas is the first child in the U.S. to survive after being born without a trachea thanks to specialists at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin who developed an innovative surgical approach that allowed him to breathe. This picture of Thomas was taken when he recently returned for a surgery that modified his stomach to serve as an esophagus allowing him to eat. Amazing! Stay strong, Thomas! #childrenshospitalofwisconsin #childrenshospital #milwaukee #chw #moose

    10-year-old Alex has experienced serious constipation his entire life. We snapped this picture of him in our hospital today while specialists in our Gastroenterology, Liver and Nutrition Program were conducting tests that will help us develop a treatment plan for his constipation. In this photo, Alex is participating in a motility study that evaluated the muscle and nerve function within his GI tract. Earlier this week, he was evaluated by one of our pediatric psychologists to identify any behavioral or psychological components of his condition. Stay strong, Alex!
