Have you ever held your breath as you wait anxiously about any news about your children. Whether it be health, school or activity? I can finally come up for breath. While it seems like only yesterday I had Abby, it was actually 10 years ago. Abby has one of the most fatal heart defects called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. I was in the height of my nursing career when I got pregnant and an intensive care nurse. I still am an intensive care nurse but I work part time. Very part time. Abby needs me more than I need to work. So this Thanksgiving as well as the past 9 other Thanksgivings I will be saying "I am so grateful we have Abby" Not that I'm not grateful for her little sister who is healthy in every way! Becca is a treasure, and they love each other so much! I am grateful for both, they are the air I breth for sure. Just as Abby has made my heart stop for health reasons, Becca has made it stop for every other reason. Yep they sure do keep me hopping and busy! What more could a mom want! Because national congenital heart defect day is Feb 14th, I will be blogging more about these defects. I have found so many people have no idea about these kids and what their parents go through. Thanks for reading.
