Re: Being admitted again out of state, helping to prepare?

I agree with getting child life specialists, they can help so much. When DS had surgery a few weeks ago they came in with books of kids(real pictures taken in their hospital) and I think it helped him a lot. I'd also be very clear when he's admitted that he has sensory issues. Like my DS needs everything explained and to touch it first, so we need a patient nurse who won't get annoyed with that. I would definitely say those things when you are getting admitted. I'm not sure they can do much ahead of time since scheduling changes so much in a hospital but I'd definitely be clear about his needs when they're doing the admit paperwork. Hope everything goes well!
