Meet my 15 month old who I will refer to as "The baby". Yes, he does have a real name, however, I guess I am a little paranoid when it comes to using real names when blogging on the web (mainly because my mother has put all these horror stories in my head about using personal information on the internet). Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah, The baby is 15 months old and he is my only child. He was born on June 23, 2007 which was one of the best days of my life and also one of the worst. Let me explain........"The baby" was born by c-section at 3:34pm and he was beautiful and perfect in so many ways. Everything was fine until the doctors discovered that "The baby" was born with a congenital heart defect called Pulmonary Stenosis (when the pulmonary valve in the heart is narrow or blocked). He had to have emergency surgery at Childrens' Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston and spent 5 days in the CICU there.
Those were the longest five days of my life. I was horrified and to be quite honest there were several times I thought I would never bring my baby home from the hospital. Thankfully I was wrong and "The baby" is doing well as you can see. He has had no problems from his heart surgery and he has gotten a clean bill of health. He is growing like a weed and is into everything since he just started walking. I am so thankful that God answered our prayers and that we were blessed with a healthy baby boy.
