5 Years Ago Today
5 Years Ago Today…
It is time for me to remember again a day that would change my life forever. 5 years ago today at one week old Manie underwent a 12 hour surgery to save his life. I watch him today and Thank God that he is here and I will spend this day like I do all days celebrating all life and enjoying our time together.
I will hold him in my arms and hug him. I will be extra grateful because I can remember when I was not allowed to hug or hold him. I will listen to his voice even his cries and feel so lucky because I will remember what it was like not to hear his voice or his cries because of the giant tube shoved down his little throat and the fact that he was unconscious. We will joke and play today. We will laugh and be together. We will worry today about things like wearing green so we don’t get pinched!
I will spend my day with a smile on my face because I know 5 years ago today Instead of giving up and giving in Manie fought to be here. I can remember this day, even with all the pain and sadness that it was, and smile because out of the pain and the sadness came a the happiness that I call Manie. Thank you Manie for you determination and for being who you are I love you.
Happy St. Patty Day everyone. I hope you all feel as lucky as I do on this very special day!
