Meet Atticus, Miracle Child!

One day, Atticus’ mom, Megan, looked at her phone and realized she had 19 voicemail, missed calls, and text messages.  She immediately realized something was wrong.  Atticus was found not moving in the swimming pool.  He was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department.  He was later connected to tubes and equipment in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for two weeks and moved to a room for a few more days after that.  Atticus was able to recover from the near drowning incident a few weeks later.  His parents are grateful for Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital and say that Atticus loved the hospital and the staff.
