What a Year

Tomorrow will be the first anniversary of our son’s health scare.

We went to Sick Kids today to be fitted for another holter - a heart monitor he wears for 24 hours but I am not concerned it will show anything wrong.
He is a heart-healthy boy.

What a difference a year makes. From sickly white and refusing to nurse at this time last year, to having a snack of sausage rolls and waiting impatiently for dinner today, you would never know he almost didn’t make it.

Ironically, though, he is sick today. He has a cold and a touch of a fever.

But I can take that over heart issues any day.

I'm sorry to hear E has a cold but I'm with you, better that than heart issues! Hugs for you both!

Poor Ethan, colds for little ones are so difficult, they just don't understand what's wrong and that's where Mom and Dad come in with lots of hugs and kisses and cuddling.

Get well Ethan. XXXXOOOO

You and E and J have done well losing yourself in life since E's health scare. Continue this way and all of you will be able to handle anything.

My thoughts were with you this weekend, kiss that little boy of yours for me :)
