I imagine that most of you are having a tryptophan hangover today from your turkey.
I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.
We had a very different day yesterday but one that makes my family very thankful.
As I have mentioned this week it was not Thanksgiving in Canada. We had it in October.
Yesterday we were up at 5:00 am to leave by 6:00 am to get to downtown Toronto to Sick Kids hospital (Toronto Hospital for Sick Children) to have our daughter Brooklyn in to have an ECG, ECO and appointment with her pediatric cardiologist.
Why so thankful?
This photo was taken in October 1997, days before Brooklyn came home from Sick Kids.
She was transferred in from another hospital in congestive heart failure at 2 1/2 months old.
An amazing hospital and with doctors who worked tirelessly to find an answer and give one to us.
She had a 5 hour emergency surgery that was successful--they saved her life.
For that we are eternally grateful to the doctors and nurses who worked so hard to save her life.
Here we are now after 17 years of bi-annual appointments with various specialists, my baby girl was officially discharged yesterday!
I have now collected all of the comments from my blog for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags and I am going to give all my guest designers the weekend to get their comments to me to put into the prize draws..
I will be announcing all of the prize winners on Monday!
Have a wonderful weekend!
