Just checking in

So, it's been awhile. Again. People keep talking about this "new normal" and I guess I just keep having to adjust.. We're hanging in there. I've had a "Walk with Me Wednesday - Down Memory Lane" post brewing in my head for two weeks. I haven't been able to bring myself to sit down and type it out. I know I just need to do it but it's been difficult.. It's about the last time we really spent with Seth.. In the meantime, I clicked on something (somewhat randomly) on my computer this am and look what I was greeted by:



Is that the cutest little baby face you've ever seen? My friend Chantelle (another heart mom) did that for me... I think while Seth was in the hospital last time. That picture was taken when we (Seth & I) went up to see her & her daugther in July when Taty had her Fontan.. We put London (Taty's little sister) and Seth on the bed and Chantelle clicked away. ::sigh:: Such a sweet face. We love you & miss you, little "tough guy" Seth!!

Oh, I wanted to add something about commenting. Several people were having difficulty with or didn't want to register. I've changed comments so you can now leave an "anonymous" comment. Just click on the little button beside anonymous. (After you type in your comment and do the word recognition). Since I've made it so easy, you should now all leave me a hello telling me how adorable that picture of Seth is! Seriously, I would love to hear from anyone who continues to read my blog after my periodic long absences.

Edited to add: If you DO post "anonymously", please consider signing your name, especially if I know you! If you're truly anonymous and you want to remain that way, I can respect that. If I spend too many nights laying awake, wondering who "anonymous" is, I'll just go back to requiring registrations. So. Tee hee.

'Till next time then!

I think every picture I've seen of Seth has been the cutest ever. Try to check in more often - you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

That is such a sweet little face! What a beautiful, perfect spirit you can see in those eyes.

Hope you're doing ok. After a year and a half of getting used to the "new normal," I can say it does get easier, although you never stop missing that sweet face.
