Patient of the Month: Jimmy

July 2015

While on vacation in Florida, Jimmy's father noticed he was feeling lethargic and unlike himself. One morning, he didn't wake up and as his father brought him out the front door, Jimmy had his first massive seizure. After spending two weeks in the nearest hospital, doctors decided to transfer him to Nicklaus Children's Hospital to receive the best care possible. While he was in the hospital, Jimmy's family found out he was going to need surgery. Six weeks and one brain surgery later, 5-year-old Jimmy was finally stable and seizure-free. Thanks to the doctors at Nicklaus Children’s, Jimmy is back to being a healthy, happy and energetic kid.
