State: Sioux City, IA
Facility: Mercy Medical Center
Prosper overcame two recent hospital stays that most four-year old kids never experience. He had surgery the night before Thanksgiving to remove his ruptured appendix. He then remained in the hospital for several days to recover and receive appropriate treatment before being discharged. Days after his discharge from the hospital, Prosper returned due to a post-operative complication and underwent one more surgery. During both stays, he showed courage and bravery, and even celebrated his 5th birthday at Mercy Medical Center! Thankfully, he was able to spend the rest of the holidays at home with his family.
