Yeah Connor!!! I knew you could do it. Mommy had a heart to heart talk with me 2 nights ago. She asked me to find you in my dreams & lend you a hand. She doesn't know it but I have been there all along. Us ANGELS form heaven stick together. Just take it one day at a time. It won't be long now. Lady bug hugs to Miss Lori, Mr. Randy & Little Bitty Bug. I always give Connor lady bug hugs. Nighty night.

What does it mean to be the parent of a child with a heart
defect?

It means going into your baby's room a dozen times a night just to
check and see if he is breathing.
It means standing over the crib and watching for the chest to rise
and fall and when you don't see it move you begin to panic and put
your head down close to the baby's face to try to hear him breathe.

It means that when you don't see the chest move and you don't hear
the breathing (because your own heart's beating is drowning out any
other sound in the room) you put your finger under the baby's nose to
feel the warm air on your finger - until you wake the baby and he
stirs - and you're thankful so thankful that he's still with you.

It means waking up with a start every morning, jumping out of bed and
running to your baby's room wondering why he isn't crying yet? It
means feeling a huge sense of relief when he hears you and opens his
eyes and smiles, It means saying a prayer of thanks for another day.

It means measuring out his medication and panicking if he spits some
of it out, How much did he spit out anyway? 1cc? 2 or 3? And
wondering if you should guesstimate how much more he should have and
worrying about overmedicating.

It means checking his nailbeds against your own to determine how blue
he is today, It means asking your husband, your mother, your
sister, "Do his lips look blue to you?"

It means snuggling him in an extra blanket for fear he wont be warm
enough. It means worrying that even a sniffle could cause an
infection that would harm the heart. It means taking your baby to the
doctor and then worrying that the baby will get something even worse
from being in the waiting room, so it means walking back and forth
and back and forth in the corridor until the nurse calls your baby's
name and takes you straight back to the examination room.

I means knowing that everyday is a blessing and a gift, it means
knowing that you are the luckiest person in the world just to be a
parent, It means cherishing every moment, every breath with such an
intensity that you feel tears come to your eyes for no apparent
reason.

It means praying for a miracle to save your baby's life. It means
praying that your marriage is strong enough to endure the
hospitalizations, separations, and the grief.

It means your own heart knows a pain no parent should know.

It means feeling weak and helpless and angry and depressed because
your child's fate is out of your hands, It means feeling strong and
determined and brave because you know you have to be.

It means your love knows new unlimited boundaries, it means your
pride in your child's accomplishments is unparalleled, It means your
pain has taught you a deeper sense of compassion and understanding
than you ever imagined.

It means we are united by the same feelings, it means that we all
know the mixed up emotions of living with death-but more importantly
of living with Life. It means that even though we are strangers … we
are more to each other than friends could ever be.

By Anna Marie Jaworski (1996)

Dearest family,
Your faith and trust just bring tears to my eyes, and a comfort to my soul. You have no idea how many hearts your littlebug has touched. It is wonderful to see pictures of him without all that "STUFF" all over him. We are keeping prayers strong everywhere for him and for you too. Take care. Jan/ME

It is so great to see Connor back in your arms again and to see your beautiful smiles. By the way, I've decided you can never give your child too many kisses becaues it is impossible for them to ever feel TOO loved. It is wonderful! So, keep on kissing and add a few in for Auntie Heather #2. :)

Love you!
Heather B.

P.S. Randy and Lori, I want you to know that just about everyday at breakfast one of the kids asks, "How is Conner today Mom?" He is on our hearts and in our prayers daily!
