I remember...

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

As a parent who has been on a similar journey, I send lots of love, strength, hugs and smiles. It's quite a journey this life.
Thanks Carmen! I hope your son/daughter is doing well xx
