Digging Deeper

So I have been following a fellow blogger. Her son is a year old. He was born with a very bad heart condition and he has spurts of going into SVT.  They have now flown to a hospital in Boston that has the best doctors in the US for Baby S's Condition. He almost died a few days ago and he now requires a procedure called an ablation that could help him but is also risky for his age. It could kill him or leave him relying on a pacemaker for the rest of his life.  God am I praying for this little guy. My heart aches for this family.

So this morning I woke up and went to Shane's room to find a pool of vomit at his bedside. When this happens I get quite upset and frustrated.  Why does my little guy have to suffer...will he ever be able to eat normal and wake up without vomiting or having to rely on medication.  This morning was different as I thought of baby S and his mom and I realized I had to dig a little deeper.

This morning I choose to be thankful instead of angry.  As I cleaned up, I became thankful that Shane is not dead or in the hospital on a feeding tube. Thankful that I can stay home with him and that although he can't eat normal foods like other toddlers his age and that I clean up a lot of vomit, he is thriving is every other way. I am so thankful that Shane is happy and that he is loved by so many awesome people. Thank you God for giving me such an amazing Little Boy!

Thank you Baby S for helping me dig a little deeper. Get well soon!
