About Mauricio: Mauricio has earned himself the nickname monito, or “little monkey,” for his incredible ability to evade our volunteers’ efforts to change or dress him in any reasonable amount of time. He is always on the move, and is having a great time exploring his environment at CJ by pulling himself up on furniture and trying to grab whatever may be within reach. Mauricio loves blowing raspberries at volunteers and his fellow patients to get their attention- or to let us know he’s not happy! He’s a busy little guy, but never too busy for a little hug or cuddle (especially near bedtime).
UPDATE: Mauricio was discharged September 10, 2011 at a healthy weight.
