Avrie’s Surgery Experience | Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital

August 27, 2018
Having surgery can be frightening for anyone, but it's especially scary for kids who don't always understand what's going on, or what the grown-ups are saying. We're here to help! Join Avrie, who had surgery at the Sacred Heart Children's Hospital pediatric surgery center in Spokane, WA. Maybe after watching and hearing her story, you and your kiddo will feel better about having surgery in the hospital. Follow Avrie's trip - from check-in, vital signs and pre-op checks; meeting the doctor who will do his surgery, along with the anesthesiologist, surgery nurse and the Child Life Specialist; the trip to the Operating Room; waking up in the recovery room with his mom by his side; and getting ready to go home.
