-wasn't even on the growth charts
-breathed rapidly and laboured
-didn't have the energy to play for more than 5 minutes and then needed a rest and/or nap
-required over 22 feedings a day which consisted of breast milk, formula and rice cereal
-caused his mom and dad lots and lots of anxiety and sleepless nights
-had the scrawniest legs I've ever seen
-seemed to have the doctors baffled (but of course not his mama!)
-despite all of that, always, and I mean ALWAYS, was smiling
|Check out those scrawny legs|
It's hard to believe that a mere 7 months ago, to the day, that same beautiful baby boy, looked like this:
It's hard to believe that:
-a 9 month old is strong enough to undergo an open heart surgery
-a surgeon can patch holes inside a heart about the size of a walnut
-a baby can be released from the hospital only 3 days after OHS
-a baby can be sent home only on Ibuprofen for the pain
It's hard to believe that ONLY 7 months later, that our strong, resilient, amazing son:
Eats donuts and spaghetti and anything else thrown his way:
Has enough energy for bikes rides with his sisters, swinging and goes so fast he runs right out of his shoes:
-On the charts
-has no residual flow through his VSD
-has absolutely NO restrictions
-and is PERFECT!! Perfect in every way!
It may be hard to believe what can happen in 7 months.
But I do believe in God and I do believe in miracles, because I see one every day!
