As the summer heat continues to scorch, kids are always looking for ways to stay cool. Even though the school year is just around the corner, cooler weather, unfortunately, isn’t coming for a while. As your family enjoys the last picnics, get-togethers and pool parties before heading back to school, you’ll want some sweet treats to help you cool off. Usually, these activities involve eating less nutritious foods such as hot dogs, ice cream, pizza, candy and potato chips. With these tempting foods readily available, it can be difficult to lure kids over to the fruit table for a healthier and more refreshing snack. By making fruit more appealing to kids, we might be able to change their views on this delicious treat.

Registered Dietician, Holly Malcolm, explores cool and tasty summertime treats for the entire family in our latest blog post. View here: http://www.arnoldpalmerhospital.com/blog/summertime-treats-for-the-entire-family

I was honored to be asked to speak at the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meeting in Boston, MA. The topic was transitioning patients to adult care from the pediatric care once they reach 21 years of age.

Worried about husband/ VSD, ASD, PMV.

When our daughter was born we found out she has a large VSD. Also ASD and PMV. We were taken by suprise and in shock. They told us open heart surgery was likely. She is 3 months now and just had an echo which determined she will need surgery. While no parent wants their child, let alone infant to go through a major surgery, i know it's in her best interest and am trusting God to get her through this. But my husband is a mess. He has been closed off with her from the start. He's afraid to get close to her, afraid we'll lose her. He's depressed. I'm not sure how to help him get through this. Are there any support groups for something like this, or any advice any parents who have gone through this that can help?

Have you connected with your patient and family counselor? There may be some groups available in the community that can help and maybe some at the hospital. Also, sometimes patient and family counselors know prior families who have a shared experience with you and they can facilitate a connection to also provide support. Don't hesitate to ask them for support, suggestions, and more resources. Take care!

How can I get information about my future Stepson thats in ICU there

My future stepson Benjamin Rogers is supposedly in the ICU there after being hit by a reckless driver while he was riding his bike. Well that is what his father whose deployed and stationed in Africa right now is telling me. I don't know if someones lying to us or whats going on I just need to know how I can go about finding a out because whom ever notified his father my fiancé told him that he was serious and needed something done that was going to cost $1800.00 and it had to be paid before procedure could be done. It doesn't make any since his father has insurance through military on them both it should cover everything.
