One year ago...

When I joined the "heart mom" forces...I was a bit intimidated.
*we are a force to be reckoned with!* ;0)
Really...each one can tell you each and every time ANYTHING "heart" has been done.
I'm NOT great with dates.
I have SO many to hold dear.
The day Grace and Jacob came home.
Their adoption dates.
All 6 birthdays...
OK...I'm just not great at it.

Over the past tummy has hurt off and on.
Like I'm anticipating something...bad.
It would wash over me EVERY TIME...last year at this time:
she was in heart failure
we were preparing to be separated from our other children
we worried if we would lose her
we were preparing for this
OHS 2009

I have been amazed at how this event is cemented in my mind.
I couldn't forget the date if I wanted to.
This is a day I will never forget.
So much emotion

If you are a new heart WILL remember the date of your child's open heart surgery...I promise.

I am sure you are doing better than you think with dates, Amber. I know that date holds a tremendous place in your heart.
