I remember the Paediatrician knocking on the door and sitting on the end of the bed
I remember the words that came out of her mouth next - Your child is showing signs of heart disease
I remember feeling broken
I remember the hardest phone call to let family know
I remember the longest flight in history
I remember the tears that wouldn't stop flowing
I remember the smell of anti-bacterial hand wash
I remember spending the day in a daze when you underwent your 8hr surgery
I remember wishing it was me
I remember finally being allowed to bring you home
I remember it all like it was yesterday.
You are my hero xx
