Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Recovering emotionally from the hospital stay means that your child will need to relive what has happened to him. For older children, reliving is done by talking about the hospital. Younger children want to play out their experiences using various toys and medical play kits. You may help your child by talking and playing with him.
