I have to admit it has been a hard year and I am ready to move on to what we thought we were getting after the Fontan. I guess part of the hard part is that when you have a baby born with HLHS the doctors give you the grim outlook and explain how your child will have to have 3 surgeries. We tried to remain as optimistic as possible and focused on getting through the 3 surgeries. After they are done you're thinking...ok, we are done for a while. Wrong. We had to wrap our head around the fact that we are NEVER done when it comes to Carla's heart. That's a hard pill to swallow, but one that is absolutely true. At this point, seeing her so well and so pink it is a shot in the arm for our moral. This long, hard, year seems to be coming to an end and we are ready to move forward. I would love to be able to try out pre-school again and watch Carla grow and thrive. She is in dire need of interaction with other children and now that she is bursting with energy I think she would enjoy herself and maybe even be able to keep up!
Here are some cute pictures from the other day :)
Hamming it up.
