Two years ago today, I kissed the top of Miss B's head, and handed her to a smiling nurse, and sent her off to open heart surgery.
In that moment, I couldn't envision our future. There were so many unknowns, so many fears and worries that when I tried to picture what would happen next, I just came up blank. The rest of my life hung on the outcome of that surgery.
|Look! Hair long enough for a braid!|
Dr. HeartSurgeon did a fabulous job. He fixed Miss B's heart. He gave her an opportunity at life. And now, two years later, our life is vibrant and full and Miss B is quite the little character. Thanks to him, I can envision our future.
That surgery was like hitting the Reset button. Before her heart repair, we had fear and worry. After surgery? All that stressful-fogginess was washed away and we were filled with hope.
And that is the way life is supposed to be lived.
Happy HeartDay, my little love! Thank you for fighting hard to stay alive and enrich our lives.
May God continue to bless your little heart!
