A little personal

Another day, another blog! Today I am in wait for my mailing tubes. I’ve got two orders waiting to go out but I’ve gotta wait on these mailing tubes. This week is going to be hard for me. My oldest daughter Mackenzie (age 3) is going in for a cath procedure on Friday. We’ve had this planned for months but now that it’s here it’s hard. For those who don’t know my youngest daughter was born with a heart defect and that prompted us to have our oldest checked. They found that Mackenzie also had a heart defect that had gone unnoticed yet not near as severe as her younger sister. Mackenzie’s problem can be corrected with a cath procedure and that’s all. But we just weren’t prepared for it. We knew my youngest had a defect when I was 20 weeks pregnant so we were fully prepared for that. We were in the NICU for 50 days, went through one surgery with her and have another in January. Although Mackenzie’s cath is nowhere near as invasive as that I am still so torn up about it. As the days go on it gets harder. I am trying to keep my mind off of it by getting online, talking to people on etsy, focusing on my orders. It helps. Well anyways, today was a personal blog day. Hope no one minds, since I don’t have many followers I’m sure it won’t! Haha…

My girls, Mackenzie (age 3) & Maddison (5 months)

  1. It's always scary, but amazing what can be done for heart defects. Although not nearly as little as your Mackenzie, my 16 year old had a catheter ablation last year to eliminate an extra electrical pathway in her heart. Multiple catheters were placed through her neck and legs and the pathway burned out. All is fine now and I wish you the same success. I'm following your blog to see how things go. Keep positive.
