When nurses called in sick, we had to stay up all night with our son and scramble to manage our work responsibilities. At times, nurses we thought would be great turned out to be awful at caring for our son. We had to figure out how to manage nursing so we could continue to work and know that our son was being well cared for.

Working with a staff of in-home nurses is like being the CEO of a small business. Parents have to find the right people, manage schedules and monitor the quality of care their children are receiving. With the skills used by successful CEOs, parents can achieve the goal of excellent care for their medically fragile children. (less)

“In the great tornado of life, things sometimes seem out of control, and we can’t see where we are going. But sometimes, when the storm passes and the dust settles, things have landed into place beautifully.”
Charisse Montgomery, Home Care CEO: A Parent's Guide to Managing In-home Pediatric Nursing

“The more love and support your child receives, the richer his or her life becomes, and nurses can certainly add to the circle of love surrounding your child.”
Charisse Montgomery, Home Care CEO: A Parent's Guide to Managing In-home Pediatric Nursing

“Parents of medically fragile children find themselves becoming experts in lots of different areas, including laws and regulations, research and treatments, and the various specialists that support the health of their children.”

“The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.”
Carl Sagan

“Scientists do not join hands every Sunday and sing "Yes gravity is real! I know gravity is real! I will have faith! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up must come down, down, down. Amen!" If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about the concept.”
