This amazing little boy will be having his heart surgery next Friday and you wouldn’t believe how much we’ve been looking forward to this day - improved overall health, sounds like a music to my ears ✨💛✨ - there were only two things that we needed to keep in mind thought - that is he would be healthy enough to go through anesthesia and the condition of his ASD would be suitable for an operation. Styrkár has gotten used to not being well all the time and has charmed us with his inner strength when he has tackled each task coming his way. Throwing up a lot on a daily basis, having difficulty with sleeping and being in pain while feeding are just some of the things he’ll hopefully be saying goodbye to after the operation and also we hope he’ll be able to say goodbye to the gastric feeding tube in a few weeks afterwards. Love this little boys resilience and he has taught me so much through the last few months ❤️ But it’s a difficult place to be in when you might not be healthy enough for an operation and at the same time it’s probably the only way to get healthier ❤️
So it was stressful seeing Styrkár getting really sick with high fever few days ago and at the same time worrying whether or not he would be able to have the operation later this week. That’s why I was so relieved hearing his heart specialist say earlier today that things were looking ok and if nothing changes he should be able to .
Afterwards I made a decision to take a short leave from posting food pics and in the spirit of mindful parenting just be fully present with my boys, like I always try to, but for the next few days I’m gonna try harder than usual and just focus on those three miracles boys we have 💙💙💙
But no worries I’ve stacked up on mama chia squeezes, RX bars, apples and tomatoes - cause #failtoplanplantofail you know 😉 .
So I’m all set and so ready to take on this next chapter in our family’s life ✨💛✨💛✨💛✨💛
