Hospital Throws Princess-Themed Party to Discharge Toddler
Emma Krall, who is almost 2 years old, called the medical device around her head her crown.
A toddler hospitalized for nearly six weeks got a send-off fit for royalty when Seattle Children’s Hospital threw her a princess-themed goodbye party to remember.
Emma Krall, who is almost 2 years old, was discharged with a tiara on her head after a major spinal surgery.
“We do not put on a tiara just for anyone,” her orthopedic surgeon Dr. Klane White said, according to the hospital. “Emma is special that way.”
Emma was hospitalized this time to undergo a spinal surgery for which she has to continue wearing a medical device around her head to keep her spine straight.
Emma started calling the medical device her crown, which inspired hospital staff to throw her a princess party to celebrate her discharge.
Someone dressed as Rapunzel sat by her bedside and played games with her as Emma waved around a sparkly wand.
The tot was born premature, and has been battling skeletal dysplasia and scoliosis ever since she was born. She has spent at least nine months in her short 22-month life in the hospital, frequently having to come back to treat different conditions.
