Family and Friends

What does family mean to you? To me, of course, it's my husband, daughter, parents, sisters, brother in laws, nieces, nephews, grandma, aunts, uncles and cousins BUT it also means my FRIENDS!

I am having a homesick moment I guess, because I truly miss my NY friends. They have been there through thick and thin and I love them for it! I wouldn't have gotten through Lorelei's first surgery without their support and love. (They know who they are!)

Through Lorelei and her CHD, I have also met some WONDERFUL Heart Moms! It's so nice to know that there is someone you can talk to about all of your concerns, and moments you hoped would come but weren't sure they would. I think since February is Heart Month, I might introduce you to some Heart Moms that I consider family and I will update more!

Tomorrow is Go Red day so, please wear red to support CHD Awareness and for Lorelei! I have already painted my nails and I will be wearing red to support Lo!

I will leave you with these lyrics that I think of when I say Lorelei is a SURVIVOR!

Destiny's Child: Survivor
I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm not gon give up (What?)
I'm not gon stop (What?)
I'm gon work harder (What?)
I'm a survivor (What?)
I'm gonna make it (What?)
I will survive (What?)
Keep on survivin' (What?)

I know, I know...It's been a while!

I am writing this afternoon from my couch where I have been for 4 and 1/2 weeks! I had foot surgery on Dec. 27 and it's going well but I sure can't wait to have this pin out of my toe.

Plenty of things have gone on since the last time I posted! We went to Disney with Make A Wish and of course, the holidays. Since I'm home, I will try to start updating because Lorelei is so CRAZY and I also told my friend Mandy that I would update for her. Here are some pics of crazy girl...
