Went to the Wool Gathering today in Yellow Springs. Lots of yummy things. Bought some yarn and notions. Got the little one an Alpaca stuffed animal. She loves it. Met a cool chick w/ a daughter that had a heart surgery scar. We started chatting b/c mine had open heart surgery at 7 months. I learned right away how lucky we are. My girl will should never have to have another surgery. She's little, but mighty and on track for 2 1/2 years old. The little one I met today was the same age, but developmentally 8 mos. old. She will have numerous more surgeries and have to have a transplant at 16 years old. Let's just say I had a big dose of reality and was very humbled and thankful today. I feel for that family and little E. I wanted to scoop her up and make it all go away.
