We are continuing to be real careful right now when we are out and about because of flu season but hope in the next few weeks the flu will start to die down some more.
Ready to get back into the swing of things and just enjoy watching Callie grow.
February Is Heart Awareness Month
Each year, 1 out of every 120 babies in the United States, and 1 million babies worldwide, is born with some type of heart defect, making congenital heart defect the most common type of birth defect in children.
More children die from Congenital Heart Defects than all the childhood cancers combined!
Join me in spreading awareness this month in honor of all the children who have lost their battle with CHD and who are currently fighting CHD. Children like Miss Callie Ann:)
8 open heart surgeries
13 heart catherizations
1 gtube surgery
30+ blood transfusions
Countless hospital stays, blood draws, IVs, 50+ Echos & EKGs and countless other procedures no child should ever have to experience.
BUT.......Callie has, our little fighter faces CHD everyday and is a miracle who is proud of each one of her scars.
AND...Thanks to this man right here, Callie is a vibrant, hilarious, brave and thriving 5 year old who is currently awaiting her 9th open heart surgery!
