Ok Happy Post :)

My husband and I bought bike trailers so we can start excercising. It is difficult to have time for yourself with 3 kids. We are always together as a family when not working so this idea was perfect!! Derek pulls the girls and I pull Brendan. I am so proud of myself because I wasn't sure I could pull my 45 lb. boy up hills but I did it. I never walked, not even once. We rode 2 1/2 miles to my sister in laws and then took the kids swimming for a few hours and then rode back home. It was such a great day. The kids had so much fun and we got some exercise.

Brendan LOVES any kind of movement since he is so limited in life. He loves go carts, bumper cars, roller name it. He is already asking when the next bike ride will be. He was cracking up when we rode down a big hill. He was yelling out "go faster, car mommy, and take a right!". He was so funny. I love seeing him smile. I love seeing him enjoy life and I love figuring out things we can still do as a family while having a disabled child. Life is good.

Heart Surgery is booked!

I will talk about it in detail at another time. It is difficult for me to write and I tear up very easily regarding this surgery. I have been dreading this for 7 years and the time has come to close his holes. He has an ASD but actually has 3 holes all in a row. We are hoping to close it in a heart cath lab with the umbrella procedure BUT they Dr.'s are not 100% sure and we will not even know until that very day. So keep us in your thoughts. He is scheduled for July 27th. :( My heart breaks for everything my boy has to endure but he is the toughest kid I have ever seen! Nothing phases him and he always keeps me strong! I love him. That is all I have for now because the tears are already welling up.
