Three weeks ago today I handed my child over to surgeons I’d only met once.
A nurse walked him down the hall away from us to start the longest 4 hours of our lives.
Each minute leading up to surgery seemed like an hour. Each day seemed like a week. Each week seems like a month.
But now here we are... three weeks post op.
A lot has changed in 3 weeks. Nolan is stronger and so are we. We are all three different people than we were walking into that hospital.
I thank God everyday for the amazing staff at CHOA and for making a life saving operation seem like just another day at the office.
Nolan is thriving, and it’s only been 3 weeks. We all still have healing that has to take place, but each day now I am excited for the next.
