Smiles and Laughs

The past few days I feel like I have posted not so bright and sunny posts.  We have seen many miracles but had some for rough patches.  Surgery is never easy, and when it involves a child it becomes harder.  My heart goes out to all those parents and children who spend their days in hospitals and care facilities.  When we are at the hospital, I am reminded of the miracles in our lives.  I am reminded that each smile, each laugh is a treasure!  It is those moments that carry us through the pain and heart ache.

Please know we feel blessed to be surrounded by happiness and hope!  I have people tell me how strong I am, how strong Brooke is...but you are the ones that help us carry this burden!  I do not think I could do it with out a wonderful support network and my faith.  I see poor children suffering without a parent to hold their hands, moms sitting up all day and night with their child with no relief, and many people with out the hope of a loving God to see them through.  And all I can do is pray.

I am wanted to post some more pics of smiles....because they really are the best medicine!  I am thankful for all the great people at the hospital and RMH that brought a smile to Brooke and my face!  Her Anesthesiologist was amazing!!! I loved her last one and did not think he could be beat, but this guy was wonderful too!  Her nurses were caring when needed and firm when needed.  The Child Life specialist were sweet and came to the rescue so many times!!  Miss Michelle was her BFF and Brooke cried when she thought she would not see her again.  And wonderful, amazing Dr B!  He can't sing his praises enough!  Brooke loves him! That there speaks volumes.  And Tim and I are so thankful for a down to earth doc who can sit and chat with us like a friend.

Miss Michelle and Brooke!

What a blessing!  I am sitting here while Aidan, Brooke and Chan play.  What a beautiful gift to be a mom, even on the really bad days!
