Updates to start the New Year
Sun, 01-06-2013 - 4:27pm

Happy New Year to everyone.  I hope you are all recovering from the holidays and are looking forward to a fresh new year.  One thing that I have been very lax about in the last couple of years was updating Nick's website.  I started it after his heart surgery in 2001.  Of course there are a bunch of pictures of him on there but I also have a lot of chd links. There are two pages that I hope you take note of, especially those who are new to the world of chd.  They are the Being a Kid page and the New Pictures - Life as a Teen page.   When you start out the chd journey, you wonder if your child will grow up, will they go to kindergarten, will they get to play like other kids, and what will their lives be like.  There are no guarantees with any child but the advances in medicine, diagnostics, surgeries,and procedures are helping more and more heart kids enjoy fairly normal lives. The link to his site is http://cheriroe-ivil.tripod.com

Nick is going to the heart doctor on February 13.  I don't know if he will see his regular doctor or another since his doctor's been out on medical leave.  We think he is doing good but I am sure that I will get a little nervous as the time approaches.  He's been off all meds since this summer.  Oh yes, his driving test is in the end of January.  I am more nervous about that ;)

Please update about your kids and especially, let us know if they are facing surgery or procedures.

Uh-oh, driving test! I still have a couple of years to adjust to that, but already makes me very nervous. I hope his appointment goes well next month.
