Last Week before Charleston
"Cuddles" for Brandt in ICU
So my test blog from my phone worked -- Brandt passed his tests yesterday very quickly and I was able to confirm again with the specialist that we could do our last couple "checks" at his office and not leave early for Charleston.
I also got to meet another heart mom from the area -- how awesome is that? Her little man also has HLHS, but after both the Norwood and Glenn surgeries, just celebrated his 6-month birthday and is doing great . . . and what a cutie! It was really good just to talk with her and get some direct input on what to expect at the Children's Hospital and following surgery, and even some good tips on places to eat and take the boys there in Charleston.
Speaking of my two older scholars -- they completed 3rd and 4rth grades, respectively, this week! Looking forward to a week of fun with them. We had to change their school enrollment for next year until we can figure out what's what these coming months. So my sentimental self was teary about saying "goodbye" at least for now to a school where the boys have had excellent training. BUT we will all adjust to the changes, and God will grow us! Everyone has been extremely supportive there at school and we thank the faculty, staff, and other parents with sincere appreciation for their kindness.
