|Hi! My name's Julia. I came to the hospital
because I had seizures. Seizures make your body shake when you don't
want it to. My seizures were caused by a tumor in the brain. This tumor
was something that didn't cooperate with all of the other parts of my brain.
So it was good to get it removed. I was a little nervous when I came to
the hospital, but that was OK. I am nine years old, old enough to know
that there are a lot of good things about the hospital. I think that you'll
agree with me, if you stick around.
