Where I've Been

For those who don't know, our sweet Walker was born on April 28th.  He was perfect and so handsome, and we only had to stay in the hospital for 2 days before we got to go home!  His big sister is so in love with him.  On May 7th, when he was 9 days old, I was sitting on the couch on a Saturday morning holding him.  I couldn't put my finger on it, but something just didn't seem right.  He was working really hard to breath, and seemed very cold.  I am an extreme worrier, so I just told myself not to stress and just kept an eye on him.  A few hours later, I couldn't get him to wake up.  Ben and I passed him back and forth, both trying to wake him up.  We made a quick decision to take him to the Urgent Care by our house.  Things got bad very very quickly.  I'm not sure how long we were there, but we ended up taking him to the Children's ER by ambulance.  Shortly after we arrived, we were told our precious "healthy" son had a pinch in his aorta, and would be flown to MUSC for heart surgery.  We were there for 11 days, and he had a successful surgery that saved his life for sure.  Thank the Lord!!  We are home now and trying to figure out how to do everything.  It feels like I've never been a mom before.  Needless to say, blogging has not been a priority.  And of course no home projects are being done.  When we get into the swing of things, I will be back with more posts!! Thanks to all those who kept up with our story and sent lots and lots of prayers and sweet messages! We couldn't have gotten through without you all!!
