When our little ones in Texas get sick, it's not fun for anyone.

When kids get sick in the Lone Star State, it seems like all of them get sick at same time to right? It just takes one child in Texas to get that rare summer cold, and then suddenly there's 25 kids that have it. So suffice to say, child's health is important to many parents.

Sometimes though, the sickness is more complex than a simple cold. It could even require a hospital stay. Which is a scary thought for anyone who has a child. Nobody wants to see their child in a hospital bed.

But when a parent brings their child in for care, they expect the best. But for those who reside in the Lone Star State, there is much work to be done.
