Twenty minutes until the clock strikes midnight here. Everyone is asleep, even Daddy. We had a very quiet but nice evening at home with the kids. We had BBQ meatballs, potato chips, carrots and dip, and made-to-order ice cream sundaes! We celebrated the Disney Channel East news years, so the kids were able to have the new year celebration with the characters from the shows they watch (way too short, I expected more!).
But they are all asleep now, all snug in their beds, 28 degrees outside. I just put on Hannah’s humidified trach collar, which she will wear for the next few years just to keep her trach and lungs moist (when she gets too dry, she gets junky and harder for her to breath).
Taking a cue from my friend, Cristina, I thought it would be interesting to revisit this past year through my blog postings by sharing the first post of each month.
January 2010 - Cruisin’ into 2010 . Wow, this is when Hannah first started crawling more than a few feet. I remember taking this video and wanting to share it with the world, I was so proud!
March 2010 – Stealing pajamas . Oh wow, I LOVED it when Hannah crawled into our bathroom to steal her sister’s pajamas! Motivation, distance crawling, and just being a sneaky little girl. LOL
April 2010 – Weekly update . Yeah, I remember being overcome with this feeling that Hannah definitely was becoming a toddler at that point, attitude and all. This was also when we started seeing what we now know was more neuro damage with her W-sitting, curled toes, etc.
May 2010 – S.O.S. Wow, I thought I was stressed out and overwhelmed back then. Never would I think just two weeks later our life would change so much when Hannah became so sick. What I would give to go back to that level of stress.
