so fortunate

today we took our little logey into children's hospital for a cat scan of his brain. apparently his head is big, but we did not know that going into today. as we sat in the waiting area for his pager to go off to head in for the procedure, i was struck by a young boy in a wheel chair. he was a little smaller than brady. he could actually wheel his wheel chair around very well. what is truly amazing for one family is just the norm for another. it struck me today how truly blessed i am to have healthy children. i cannot imagine what some families have to go through on a daily basis. some parents were walking around with permanent badges around their neck, they visit there so often. god please help these families on their journeys. thank you so much for blessing me and my children. today i feel so fortunate and like a huge weight has been lifted off my heart.

Nothing can be more eye opening than sitting in a waiting room at Children's Hospital to appreciate the health of your children. I had that same feeling when Andrew was hospitalized at 5 months old. I am glad Logan's tests came out good. Merri

we were so fortunate they did. i know you went through a lot with andy. signs of what a strong mother you are. i am not sure i could have gone through something like that intact.
