Oliver Hayes...you are a miracle!

First off...sorry for not keeping everyone on the up and up, but I have been busy snuggling Ollie at home...you're right, I said HOME!!!! :) I thought it was in Ollie's best interest to recover more at home rather than stay in hospital as illnesses were on the rise. 

Ollie has made tremendous strides in his recovery...I must say, we never underestimated this amazing, little fighter. He is a miracle! A miracle that Jason and I have been blessed with...

This little mister has an ever so long road to travel down, but we will be by his side for the ride though he can quit the roller coaster ride at anytime...I know I said I love roller coasters, but not this one! Ollie's heart is making everyone jump hurdles when he should be sprinting toward the finish line. He will have more open heart surgeries in the future...when??? Now that is a good question. As of right now, Ollie's heart has endured far more trauma than intended and needs to rest. We are traveling this road at a turtle pace because of Ollie's almost nonexistant combination of heart defects and lack of knowledge for these defects. 

I have been asked on several occasions, "how do we do it?" There is a simple answer to it...you just do. Our lives have completely changed to what is now our "normal". I wouldn't trade this situation or experience for anything. Yes it is hard...emotionally, mentally, and physically, but the reward surpasses it all. Ollie is here to show us all how grateful we should be. He is here to show us the greatness of life and for this, I am one lucky momma. He may never see the beauty of Earth, but he will show us beauty in a different manner. This could go on and on about how Ollie has made a difference in many lives. He is such an inspiration and I can't tell you how thankful I am to be his mommy. One tiny boy making huge difference everyday in our lives!
