Five years ago today I became the second luckiest person in the world. That was the day I married my wife. (She became the luckiest person in the world because she married me.) This is not quite how we had envisioned our 5th wedding anniversary, We were thinking more along the line of dinner and a quiet evening alone. Definitely not an evening alone. While his may not be what we planned, as nothing is these days, we are still here. We are still together. We still have two beautiful children. Could we ask for more?
This week has been a rough week. Part of being a parent with a "sick kid" has become following the other parents stories who have other "sick kids". You become very attached to the other kids even if you haven't met them. When they are doing well it makes us happy and fills us with hope. When they are not doing well it is as if your own child is having a bad week too. We currently are following about 14 kids - some with MID, some Omegaven kids, some others. It has been hard to celebrate how well Sam is doing this week when I have watched four of our "friends" struggle this week with some serious issues. We are hoping for the best for all of them.
