Phoenix Children's Hospital's 30th Birthday

Ethan and I were recently interviewed at Phoenix Children's Hospital by Fox News. The interview aired Monday August 26th and although it was supposed to be in celebration of PCH's 30th Anniversary it turned out to be more of a follow up story. It was a special visit because we were able to visit with one of our favorite PICU nurses who had not seen Ethan in over a year.  As always the visit reminded us about how fortunate we are and how many people were involved in Ethan's recovery.  During the interview Ethan thanked all the great doctors, nurses and staff that helped him.The interview didn't include that part but I was very happy that they added my request to remind parents and all gun owners to keep their guns secure.  Prevention is possible - it just takes action!  Invest in a gun safe or gun lock. There are free gun locks available through Project Childsafe. It's a decision that you won't regret and could save you a lifetime of guilt and regret.  That's my advice which our family learned the hard way - believe me, no one will miss one more accidental shooting and I'm sure PCH would be happy not to get so many gunshot traumas through their doors. So happy 30th Birthday PCH, thank you for being here to help our family and our community, we are lucky to have you!
