Another year is in the books!  Looking back at old photos, I’m amazed by how the boys have grown.  We’ve experienced a lot of changes.  This time last year they were recovering from G-tube surgery.  They went on to the Ketogenic diet in February, including a few days in patient to get adjusted.   L had a very bad round with pneumonia starting on April 20th, that lasted a month and a half.  It got scary.  (PICU for weeks, strong vent settings, chest tube draining a liter of fluid, palliative care stopping by to get to know us kind of scary.)  You may recall that N joined him for a few days, (twins are funny like that).  And we came home to some overwhelming, but overall very positive changes.

It wasn’t all a medical free for all.  We made a lot of very great memories too.

 

Throughout the past year, the boys have grown by leaps and bounds, and in the meantime, helped me to grow as a person and mom too.

I have been challenged, but also blessed.  My plate remains full, but my cup runs over.  And while my normal may not be yours, I find myself so grateful that this life, these boys, are mine.  Thank you for being part of our normal too.  Here’s to another year!
