Couldn't Resist!

I think I have shared with you that at my son's school part of the first grade curriculum is making knitting needles and then learning to knit. This morning, before going off to the gym, I found my husband teaching himself how to knit. Now he can share this experience with Aden. Time for me to get crackin'.

Still Reminiscing

This is a digital photo of a photo from a camera, I'm sure, is not made anymore. About 19-years-ago, this picture was taken of Alexia, soon after I left my first husband. We moved into my mom's house and were just setting up Dr.'s, PT, OT etc and feeling very comfortable! I had to share this one because this was when my life started to change for the better......I never turned back.........

Happy CHD Day and Valentine's day!

I am in a reminiscing sort of mood today. I googled Alexia's surgeon, who did her repair 18+ years ago, Dr. Hillel Laks. It wasn't untill our last support group meeting, did I really realize what an amazing accomplishment actually took place. When Alexia had this repair in 1989, pediatric open heart surgery was still very new. I am sure this was an experimental surgery. I remember it being a very long day, close to a 14 hour surgery. I remember the next day, was a critcal day with 2 codes. I remember 4 weeks later going home. Do you know how much I would like to thank him personally, but he probably doesn't even remember us. I want to do something for him (remember he is 8 hours from us) and I hope you can help me. I want him to remember the day he fixed Lexi and him to know how much I am thankful. I need ideas. Post ideas here and If I use one (or more) of them, you will win a Valentine goodie bag/box.
