Happy, Happy, Happy!

Happy Valentine's Day, Happy Heart Day, Happy CHD Day and Happy Birthday, Grandma George!

Connie got his first haircut yesterday (thanks Cousin Laurie!). Now he looks like a little boy and not a baby anymore :(

Yesterday I delivered the valentine's that Celeste's class made to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital. Originally I was supposed to hand deliver them to each patient but as I was entering the unit, a patient was coding, getting put on ECMO (bypass)and the whole staff was in "emergency mode" and they closed the unit to all visitors. I was disappointed about not getting to see the reactions of the kids as they got their valentines, but even more so, it was very sad to see the reality of this disease. That could be Conway someday. It was someone else's child today. Thank God for the miracles who are beating CHD's. There are many who are not winning or who have lost the battle.

Here are a couple of recent pics. . .

I am from the March board and I am still checking the site every single day to check on beautiful Conway. He just puts the biggest smile on my face every time when I see pictures of him looking so healthy and adorable. I am so happy for him, you and the rest of the family.

Wow Connie!

You are looking so grown up with those teeth! You are so sweet and I bet you were good for the haircut too! Tell Mary Kathleen I said hi!
