I am in the middle of assembling Valentine's for the girls' preschool parties tomorrow, but I could not let this day pass without recognizing the miracle of life and modern medicine. It's hard to believe that one year ago today my vivacious eldest daughter had just undergone open-heart surgery and was recovering (beautifully!) in the pediatric ICU. I thank my lucky stars that she is a strong girl with a strong heart and that we had the best surgeons, doctors, nurses and overall care during our stay at Children's Hospital. We certainly are blessed.
And look at her today! Amazing, healthy girl!!!
