Drew is wheeled back to his room from recovery.  As with most children prior to a surgery, the hospital experience can be frightening.

"What I really would like is for my boy's to be able to tell me what hurt's them," says Jill. "I would love to know if they have a headache, an upset stomach, or any other hurt. I don't know if we will reach that goal - but it would be nice." Drew was admitted for a simple teeth extraction. However, with an autistic child, nothing is simple. photo by jane therese
