She's our Little Spitfire! The Berg Family

The most helpful part about staying close was knowing I could go over and visit whenever I wanted yet knew when I left she wasn't far away. We know that having a sick child is hard but in the end they are where they need to be and RMH allows us to be near them during that time...it'll all work out in the end.

WHAT BROUGHT YOUR FAMILY TO STAY AT RMH LONDON?

When Regan was born 5 years ago, she was born grey and barely breathing. She was rushed to NICU in Windsor and intubated. Nobody could figure out what was wrong and they suggested we travel to London for her ongoing care...we left for London and I needed a place I could be near Regan. Coming into the world with newborn complications, Regan continues to amaze us by reaching new heights - good thing we always have RMH London keeping us close for follow-up appointments for her respiratory needs.
 


 
WHAT WAS MOST HELPFUL ABOUT HAVING RMH LONDON KEEPING YOU CLOSE ? 

My husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, would visit during the week and my parents came up on weekends. We also made relationships with a lot of the main office staff and some other families. On our first stay in 2013 we were there for 6 months so were able to meet a lot of people – it was nice being able to talk with other parents going through similar situations. We ate dinner at the House every night, we spent Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day, Easter and Mother's Day at the House and there was always fun stuff going on. Regan was a tiny little 6 lb baby who we almost lost and now 5 years later she is defying odds – she’s our little spitfire!
