March 30, 2005 our first son was born;
March 30, 2012 our second son had his first of two brain surgeries.
I’ve been really busy preparing for Mr. FSW 9th birthday. I enjoy the creative aspect of party planning but not the time restraints. He’s such a good boy and he’s a great big brother. He deserves an entire day of everyone’s attention. For once its all about him…
Than why? Of all the 364 other days in a year did Adams surgery also occur on his birthday.
It’s a reminder two years ago was Adams surgery. Incase you don’t know: traumatic brain injuries such as his are given a time limitation of two years as a “new baseline.” They told me whatever he is like at two years after surgery is what he will probably remain at… Doctors said he functions at a 6week old child’s ability level… I disagree.
So on this weekend I will be reflecting on the growth of my two boys and the significance of March 30, to our lives. I will certainly be counting my blessings and looking closer at what I think really matters.
OPTIMISM, HOPE, FAITH and LOVE. NOT TIME.
