A year later...

Pin It

It has been almost a year that I wrote about my little girl on this blog.

Mainly because this blog is a craft blog, but once a year I do make an exception,
because October is Down syndrome awareness month.

So how has our youngest been doing this year?

She is doing great!

She is sixteen months old,
and a happy and active little girl.

She was born with a heart problem, a so-called VSD and an ASD.
That is a condition that could solve on its own, but unfortunately that wasn't the case for her.
So in November, she had to have open heart surgery.

There haven't been many moments in my life that I was SO nervous and scared as the moment when we handed her over to be taken into surgery. But there was no option, not doing it would be fatal eventually.

Luckily, she went through it like a champ. Recovery was quick, and like her cardiologist wrote later in a letter "she seems to have set all kind of records in recovery and leaving the hospital so soon". 

Since then, things have been going pretty smoothly. 

She is healthy, and keeps learning new things.

We all love her to pieces!

Ben had a large VSD and a small ASD. He too had open heart surgery and has made a full recovery, although he had to spend 7 days in the hospital:)
