Happy 1st ‘Heartiversary’ Eli!

Today is Eli’s ‘Heart Day’! It has been one year since Eli’s heart was repaired. One year ago we were anxiously handing our child over to doctors for open heart surgery. I can picture it like it was yesterday.


I can also still feel the total calmness that washed over me. The voice in my head telling me it was all going to be ok. I put all my faith in God. I ‘Let Go and Let God’. I had full trust in his surgeon and his team. They were on our side. They were going to fix our boy.


Here it is, one year later already. What a year it’s been. If his heart wasn’t repaired so successfully, who knows how (or even if) he would’ve gotten through the other setbacks he’s faced. Open heart surgery was his first of many obstacles last year. Because of it, he was able to conquer each one. I am so very thankful for this precious boy and his healthy heart.
