Mott memories: Share your stories about the children's hospital
These are the elements of a Mott Children's Hospital birth story. I know this because it's one of mine.
As Mott prepares for its Dec. 4 move into the new C.S. Mott Children’s and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, AnnArbor.com is asking readers and former patients to share their Mott memories.
Many mothers love to share their birth stories, and thankfully those are usually joyous. Of course, families also find themselves at Mott as they face some of the most difficult situations imaginable, involving very sick children.
In both cases, the hospital has immense capacity to touch lives. What is your most vivid memory of being at Mott? Were there things that surprised you? Was there a staff member you particularly appreciated? Is there anything you wish had been done differently?
Write your memories in the comments below, or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with photos, if you wish. We will feature them in an upcoming print edition of AnnArbor.com, as well as online.
Oh, and the baby in my story? He's a healthy 5-year-old now, embracing life with just as much drama as the one that brought him into the world.
