Her brother and sister would play nearby, and she loved cuddles in the rocking chair, working hard for her therapists and loves from grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
The journey was hard and bumpy but the love and support from her wonderful family, numerous dear friends and community gave her family strength. She was blessed with so many wonderful caregivers that provided compassion and support for both Juliet and her family.
?Her loves extended to her fourth-floor family at Children’s in Omaha, the PICU team and all her hospitalists, therapists and specialty physicians at Children’s as well as her team in Kearney and beyond. All of these special people, too numerous to mention, provided her with unending compassionate care, family members stated.
