I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Owain is home :)

I know I should have posted here sooner, but I haven’t had more than a minute or two to try to sit down at the computer.

Owain came home last Wednesday, October 15th. It is amazing that he was only in the hospital for a week and a day after having major bilateral open heart surgery!! He is such a happy guy, you would never know what he went through just 2 weeks ago, he is my hero. We still have to be extra careful when we pick him up & can’t pick him up under his arms for another 1 1/2 months, but he loves to sit up on my lap & hang out, like nothing ever happened. Babies are so resilient!

He is finally getting his appetite back & is almost eating as much as he was before surgery. He is also on no pain meds, just a bit of Tylenol when he gets too fussy, which he doesn’t do often any more. Mostly he just wants to be attached to me at all times, I swear he is like velcro LOL. I call him my little cling-on.

Pretty much as soon as he came home we all got sick & except for taking care of the kids…a few of whom had to take care of themselves…I have been trying to recover on the couch & pretty much had to tie Mr Wall Nut to the couch so he wouldn’t go out & work on the addition.

I have one picture of him in the hospital & one a few days before his surgery. Enjoy!!

I love my Little Owee!

We have a follow up appointment at UVA this afternoon, so that is all I have time for now, but I thought you all deserved to hear from me & see some new pictures of my little guy!

Thanks for all your prayers & support! (((big hugs)))
