Today, July 19th marks Xander's one year anniversary of his second heart surgery. So in celebrating this milestone Nick and I gave back by donating blood. What better way to celebrate the gift of life.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at all emotional this week over this, because truth be told it doesn't matter how long it's been it's still hard to think of it all and remembering all of the emotions that were there that day. What can I say he's turned me into a blubbering softy.
We said goodbye to our OT the other week. Xander is now up to speed and is walking everywhere, heaven help me!
Remember this, when faced with challenges always remember that god is right there to lean on, never feel you are alone!
Oh and by the way, for those of you that know my husband know that this man is AFRAID of needles like no other. I have to admit I am super proud of him by swallowing that fear and having that needle stuck in his arm to give blood today for his first time!! Such a trooper!!
