Hi teachers!!! I'm back! It's been quite some time since I've posted on this blog! As I posted before, my son has a congenital heart defect. It's been a rocky, rough, busy last two years in my little world. Just a super quick update....Our son, Cael, was born on March 31. His condition is known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He surpassed all his odds and fought hard for the last 17 months. He is now 17 months old and doing WONDERFUL! His heart is and always will be an ongoing concern as we monitor and watch him. He will have at least one more open heart surgery (possibly summer 2014) and possibly a transplant. He still has a feeding tube in his stomach and eating/drinking is our daily battle. Cael is such a blessing to us! {Cael is the spokesperson for the American Heart Association - Butler County this year. You can check out his whole story on our AHA Heart Walk page. }

I promise to be more active posting this year! :)

Here's my little miracle!
