He was born with Pulmonary Atresia.
Tomorrow he has to have a heart catheterization. In about 2 weeks, he’ll have to have his first heart surgery to insert some sort of tubing to make up one of the pulmonary veins that is missing.
As his mother I feel so helpless. One part of me just wants to go to the hospital and scoop him up in my arms and bring him home and just hold him forever and ever. Another part of me (the more sensible part) knows that in order for him to have the best life possible, he has to go through these procedures and surgeries. It’s not going to be easy for him or for his family.
But then I am reminded (speaking of “heart”):
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)In order for any of us to have the best life possible, we have to go through these trials. I feel so blessed to have the love and support from so many friends and family members. I love that I can rely on my Heavenly Father to be with Bogey and comfort him when I can’t.
I continue to build and nourish my little sprig as I trust in Heavenly Father and His Son’s Atonement.
How grateful I am for the power of prayer and the ability that I have to go to my Father in Heaven and and know that HE knows what I’m pleading for when I say,
“Bless his heart”.
