Happy Half Birthday!

I can’t believe I’ve had Nolan for 6 months (and 2 days)! It’s been an incredible and sometimes difficult six months. We’ve made it through two open heart surgeries and miserable headaches. June was the first month so far that we didn’t have to stay at least one night in the hospital. I love this […]

My Sweet, Happy Boy is BACK!

Our hospital stay with the Glenn was only 6 days! It was so much easier and “better” than the Norwood… as far as the hospital stay and surgery go. But Nolan was pretty miserable. Those headaches are no joke! I’m pretty sure I was fairly close to going crazy and pulling all of my hair […]

The Necessary Norwood

  Nolan was born on January 13, 2016. On January 18, he had his first surgery of the three-stage procedure that will help his heart function a little better. No mother should have to watch her 5 day old wheeled off into surgery. Johnny and I woke up semi-early and got to the hospital by […]

It […]

12 DAYS TO GO?!

I LOVE seeing Nolan and hearing his heart, but weekly visits just remind me that everything is not as […]

32 weeks down, forever to go!

I was hoping the holiday season would make these last few weeks fly by but that’s just not the case. 😦 I feel like this last 7 weeks is going to drag by and mid-January is NEVER going to get here. I’m so anxious to meet this baby! During the Thanksgiving break I had a […]

Our Blue Baby

Our lives are about to get very busy! On the 21st of September we had an appointment with a maternal-fetal medicine specialist. The midwife wanted us to go get a second look at Nolan’s heart. I went in thinking the doctor was just going to tell us there was a calcification on his heart and […]
