It’s the last day of this year and what a year it has been…
At the moment the princess is in the kitchen, helping dad to prepare the new years meal. And because there were no traditional english turkey for christmas we are having a turkeymeal today instead 🙂
Ok..so I take this off… ….and put it in here?
This day was hard to imagine when we first got the news about her heart for a little over 1 ½ years ago.
Back then the world collapsed around us, the joy of being new parents disappeared in the background and everything revolved around hospital visits and examinations. Now she has gone through two major operations and successfully, she is like any other child now except that she still looks a bit special on the inside and have a few scars on the outside but that’s what makes her who she is and we would not change anything.
This journey (which of course is not over yet) has probably made us all a bit stronger, and I think we look at life in a different way than we did before.
But right now we are looking forward to the new year!
Emily doesn’t take any medications any more, she is going back to the hospital for a check up in mid-January and has been back to Nursery for a little while , a soft start and it has been just great. She talks about her friends when she gets home so we have to guess who’s who, we can’t really understand everything she says. 🙂 After the new year she is back fulltime at Nursery, as usual, and I’m back at work.
I am going to keep this blog updated, not as often as before but we will fill you in on Ems adventures now and then 🙂
Take care of yourselfs and take care of eachother tonight and in the future.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Nina, Keith and Emily
