Months earlier, Gabi and a server were talking about the need (and my personal illusion) to include a presentation on the famous #paseosquecuran (healing walks). It´s time to talk about [...]

It has been a long road, which has required considerable effort, tenacity and resilience... much resilience. But now, in the end and [...]

Do you have a bed available in the PICU?

2 May, 2017|

I was recently called by a friend who works in an adult ICU. He had been rotating in our pediatric ICU few years ago: - "Hi Javi, sorry to call you during work hours but a colleague from the ICU is having a terrible time. Her daughter is awaiting surgery at your hospital but it has been cancelled again and again for lack [...]
