This may seem simple but that act of listening to my frustrations really helped.

My son, M, has been hospitalized many times at the TCH Woodlands and Main Campus. Debbie has taken care of M at both campuses. M has not been an easy patient due to his rare disease – Autoimmune Disease and also Asperger's syndrome. Hospitalizations can be very difficult for M, his parents, and for the staff. It has been particularly difficult in the last few months because M has had 10 hospitalizations this year alone. This past Tuesday, M was readmitted and Debbie was his nurse on admission day. Not only did Debbie provide loving care for M but listened to me. As the mother, I felt I was really heard by someone for the first time, in a long time. This may seem simple but that act of listening to my frustrations really helped. This has really touched me and helped me tremendously. Debbie is an example of a true DAISY Nurse. Thank you so much, Debbie!
