Patient Spotlight: Meet Noah

Pediatric Home Service has always lived by the mission of ‘taking care of the child‘, we have made it our goal to always provide the best care for our patients and their families, every single day. In our new monthly Patient Spotlight segment you’ll read stories and see pictures of some very special kiddos and their families. PHS kids truly do thrive and we’re excited to be able to share their stories.

A little background

Noah is and active and fun 16 year old who has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP), epilepsy and has a history of recurrent pneumonia. Pediatric Home Service provides Noah with his in-home nursing care and infusion therapy treatments and we’re glad to be able to help keep Noah safe and at home where he belongs. Despite Noah’s medical complications, nothing is holding this young man back, Noah is all boy (as you can see from the pictures below)! He loves being outside, playing with animals and riding through the woods on the hay truck. In early October, Noah was granted a wish from Wishes & More making it possible for he and his family to visit Confidence Learning Center for a weekend of fun.

A glimpse into the fun

Noah’s favorite part about his trip was….everything! He loved the slipper slide, the glass-bottom boat, and the many hay rides. He pet bunnies, laughed hysterically over the grunts and “burps” of Frankie the pig, fed deer out of his hand, was kissed by a deer on the forehead, screamed in joy as we went bumping down the hills in the hay truck, loved playing in a pile of leaves, and loved giving hugs to everyone he knows and loves.

PHS is thankful for organizations like Wishes & More and Confidence Learning Center for making it possible for our patients to get out and thrive in the community.  In addition to these two organizations we want to give thanks to Noah’s parents and all of the parents of medically-complex kiddos. Your role is never ending and you deserve recognition for all you do for your children.
