This is the day Hope is scheduled for her heart catheterization to possibly put a stent in her pulmonary artery. It also marks one year since we found out she would be born with HLHS. What a difference a year makes. I just read the first blog posting I created and cannot believe how far we have come since that day. It makes me sad to think that we actually considered terminating the pregnancy. It makes me sad to think that the option is available to parents with all the advances that have been made...that I did not know much about at the beginning of our journey.
May 13th is a special day in our lives for so many reasons and knowing Hope will be having another heart catheterization on that day scares me. I think everyone knows how scared I am anytime Hope has to go in for any procedure. I don't know why catheterizations scare me so much, but they do. Open heart surgery scares me more, but I know (or at least pray) that she won't need near as many surgeries as caths.
Our life has been great lately. We have been spending a lot of time playing outside and when we are inside...everyone seems to be getting along. I love watching my boys with Hope and how much they try and help her and play with her all the time. Everyone is getting so big and that kind of means that I am getting older...YUCK. I am going to start considering it as getting wiser, rather than older. I don't feel 40 physically, but mentally there are days when I feel a whole lot older.
Thank you all for following along in our journey and keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers.
