Don't Think About It
I realized today that a lot of my success in dealing with raising a child with HLHS is about persistent positivity. You have today. Don't worry about what would have happened or could have happened. What it is, is exactly what it is. Live in it, and try to put a smile on your child's face because that's what they need...your smiles, your uplifting spirit, your ability to provide hope and happiness. That's all.
Enjoy the smiles you get, induce a few. It helps when nothing else will. There aren't enough words to describe how difficult this journey can be, but hanging on and hoping for the better days have brought air, light and smiles to our souls and faces.
