Happy Heart Day Gavin!

Having a very rough day!

February 16, 2007... back in his bed, finally HOME SWEET HOME!!!
Three years ago today, we handed our baby boy over to Dr. P for the second time. Gavin had his 2nd open heart surgery at 3 months old. Every anniversary of Gavin's "Heart Day" we take him to celebrate somewhere special. He wanted to go to Incredible Pizza tonight, so that is exactly what we will do.

Mommy and Daddy are so proud of the little man you are today. We are amazed by your
strength and how far you have come since February 5, 2007. We love you Gavin and can't wait to see what God has in store for your future!


P.S. Today is NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY!!! Wear RED and support the fight against heart disease!

This makes me cry! Gavin, Aunt Kiki loves you so much and I don't want to know what my life would be like without you! You are my hero and have changed my life and relationship with God completely! You may only be 3, but you have taught me so many life lessons! I LOVE You and miss you like crazy!!

Hi Gavin's Mama,

I happened across your blog through some links (I'm sure you understand how that works...) I have an 18 month old with HLHS. I love getting in touch with other heart families. Thanks for sharing Gavin's story. He's precious and such a inspiration!
