The Short Gut Syndrome Parents' Support Group depends on all of you to be a success. It is a group run by parents for parents.
The group is was founded by Emily Hoopes in response to a growing need recognized by the GI clinic at Primary Children's Hospital.
We have a professional alliance with the gastrointerology and social work departments at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The hospital is hosting the group which means that they will allow us to meet at the hospital and will act as a primary educational resource.
My teddy's my best friend, without a doubt
His side is stitched up and some stuffing's come out.
He's missing a button and some fur on his tail
But those things don't matter, I love him so well.
He's faithful. He's happy. He helps dry my tears.
He patiently bears being hung by his ears.
He's rough round the edges, but deep down he’s great.
I can't help but love him, with all of his scrapes.
Like I love my teddy, my mommy loves me
For all that I am, and for all I can be.
I may be beat up, even missing some parts
But I know she still loves me with all of her heart.
