The title for this post might not make sense to most but to those who have a child with CHD, I'm sure it will make sense as this post continues. At this moment my child has one of the rarest, most complex heart condition there is, her furture is uncertain but at this very moment she is doing FANTASTIC!! For the first time in a long time, I feel relieved, almost like this isn't real no trips for 1 YEAR but at the same time you never forget her severe things really are. (hence my title for this post)
February 1st marks CHD Awareness month...WHO DO YOU WHERE RED FOR???
1in100 babies are born with a Congenital Heart Defect & CHD kills more kids than all pediatric cancers combined yet gets 1/10th funding. Help spread awareness!
Like most, I had never even heard about Congenital Heart Defects before I had Callie and knew very little about the human heart. Today, I know more than I could ever imagined. Share Callie's story with someone this month or if you know another child with CHD share there story. Raise awareness, get the word out, help give these kids the fighting chance they deserve.
Callie her follow up with cardiology here yesterday and everything looks good! She is just over 38 inches tall and still 25lbs. my string bean;) Thanks for checking in and remember FEBRUARY IS CHD AWARENESS MONTH:)
