My Kids

TRex is afraid to be upstairs by himself. He always has been. So, today, when he had to go upstairs to use the bathroom since the downstairs was occupied, his sister offered to go up with him. She stood in the hallway pretending to be Cap'n Hook while he did his business. TRex made sure that DQ knew if she got scared, he was right there for her on the other side of the door. That is how it is with my kids. They take care of each other.

Later today, TRex kept grabbing DQ, annoying the hell out of her. She would yell. That is how it is with my kids.  They fight with each other frequently.

DQ had a helium balloon. She called it her baby. It's string was too short for her to reach it. TRex got a stool, climbed on, then handed his sister her balloon baby.  That is how it is with my kids.  They help each other out.

Five minutes later, DQ needed the stool to wash her hands and TRex held on to it for dear life, not letting go no matter how nice DQ asked.  That is how it is with my kids.  They drive each other crazy.

Right now, TRex and DQ are playing in their bedroom together, having fun.  That is how it is with my kids.  They are best friends.


Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
