Congratulations to 10-year-old Manny who went home with a new heart today! At birth, Manny was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a condition where the left side of his heart doesnt pump blood effectively. Pictured here is Manny and his cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Mike Mitchell, who performed all three major heart surgeries Manny has had over his lifetime. Congratulations, Manny, stay strong! #hypoplasticleftheartsyndrome

According to Mom, 2-year-old Vivian and our therapy dog, Archie, became instant cuddle buddies when Archie came to visit her in our PICU. Mom said, Vivian is at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin due to a kidney infection and shunt malfunction. Although the days have been rough, it was great to see her interact and enjoy her visit from your therapy dog, Archie! Thank you for offering such awesome pick-me-ups for the kids staying here! We are so grateful! Stay strong, Vivian!

Right now, 10-year-old Vance is in our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit waiting to have another seizure. While he passes the time playing with Lego bricks, specialists within our Level 4 Epilepsy Center are monitoring his brain activity around the clock to determine the best treatment plan to manage his specific type of seizures. Over the past three years, Vance and his family have become very familiar with the team and level of care provided through our Neurosciences Center. When Vance was 7 years old, Dr. Lew performed surgery to remove a tumor the size of a golf ball from his brain. Now Vances family is looking for a treatment plan for his seizures. Mom said, We choose to look at this experience as a gift and we are fortunate to have Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin right in our backyard to care for our son. The doctors here are absolutely amazing, including Dr. Lew and Dr. Marashly. All the nurses caring for Vance have been phenomenal. This place is very special to us and we could not be any happier with the care Vance is receiving. Stay strong, Vance! #epilepsy #seizure

Its cuddle time for 12-day-old Jayceon and his mom in our NICU! How adorable is this picture we took today? Jayceon is being cared for in our NICU because he was born 6 weeks early, weighing just 4 pounds, 15 ounces. Mom said, Jayceon is progressing with his feeding and is growing every day. Were not sure how long we will need to stay in the NICU, but the doctors, nurses and staff at Childrens Hospital of Wisconsin have been great. Theyre doing everything they can to make us feel at home. This is the best place for us to be. Stay strong, Jayceon! #NICU
