The children we are blessed to care for aren’t just patients, they’re family. Thank you to mom Michelle for sending us this sweet pic she snapped today of her daughter Kinsley with Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr. Malcolm MacDonald. (He’s her favorite doc, she says...)❤️ Kinsley was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a birth defect that causes one side of the heart to be underdeveloped. Kinsley’s had three open-heart surgeries and on Monday, underwent a procedure in our cardiac catherization lab. As you can see, Kinsley is all smiles - and will be going home in time for her first day of first grade! Good luck, Kins!

I wanna be honest... I have posted so much about fighting through scoliosis and working out. I’ve explained how it is so possible to work out with scoliosis. But I wanna be real and let me tell you, it friggin hurts. I constantly go home after the gym or even after a long period of ANY activity with back pain. It is NOT easy. I’ve been dealing with more pain than usual recently and I constantly question whether working out is doing my back any good. I’m just addicted to working out in general. I know that there are people who experience far more pain than I do and I seriously wanna give them kudos for fighting through. I just really don't want to give people with scoliosis or any back disability a false sense of being painless when working out. It’s definitely a working process every day.

Flying ✈️ over the state of California this past weekend, I had a moment of realization that soon I will be taking care of a lot of children on my own as an attending (making decisions that I am solely responsible for). I was thinking of the 1.3 million children in the twelve counties that Valley Children's Hospital covers (luckily not all will need my service). Starting February 2019, I will be the director of pediatric hand surgery and part of the plastic and reconstructive surgery team at Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, California!🦒 . One year ago I made this decision with my family/wife to join this hospital after being recruited. Luckily I had a “Jerry McGuire” (a coach on negotiation for physicians) on my side to go thru this process. As I’ve stated before we all need ongoing mentorship. We do not get training on negotiation and it’s an important aspect of finding the “right” job/fit but knowing that there is no perfect job. I will give this position my absolute best and hope to take care of many children/families. This past year being in hand surgery fellowship has gone by quickly and my next step before this position starts will be a 6 month pediatric hand surgery fellowship in Dallas. After “30th grade” it’s time! 🙌🏼 . I cannot wait to get started! I also will have a research program too. I cannot wait to get started! Oh yeah I said that already. Wish me luck! . Will I be mentoring? I guarantee it! . I took these photos on one of my interview days at Valley Children’s. I am as excited as when I first stepped into this hospital. Hands up!! 🙌🏼

Always a great day when our favorite quarterback visits us! Thank you to Derek Carr for spending time with our patients and families in our rehab gym, cancer center and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). The smiles on our kids' faces are wonderful to see.

Happy Doctor’s Day! Today honors physicians for the work they do for their patients, families and the communities they work in. We are beyond proud of the high-quality compassionate care our doctors provide to the children of the Central Valley.

So proud of my brave boy ❤ I know tubes isn't a big deal but when your baby has to have anesthetics you worry. I didn't want him to be scared or cry for me. He was totally fine and I owe all that to the Doctor, Nurses and staff at Valley Childrens. They were amazing and took great care of our sweet boy. #valleychildrenshospital #DrRowe #braveboy

“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” On this day we honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., and thank our doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to helping us care for children.

2AM and already 5 hrs at the hospital. This little guy started to worry me with his abdominal pain. Thank God is not his appendix. Got some blood samples and IV fluids. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and we can go home soon. You just know when it’s time to go to the hospital. Nurses and doctors have been amazing with my little man. #mypoorbaby #getwellsoon #valleychildrenshospital

Lupita’s granddaughter, Baiya, would tell her about this special place full of friends and a dancing giraffe. See why Lupita is so grateful for the care her family receives at Valley Children’s.
