Happy New Year
I have to say 2010 was a pretty ordinary year....nothing extraordinary happened. Not that I am complaining one bit. I have two healthy, beautiful children. 2008 was way too eventful for me with having Molly and Luke at 28 weeks! 2009 was used mostly as a catch up year....we spent a majority of the year getting (& worrying about) Molly and Luke caught up to their birth age physically and mentally! My 2009 New Years post talked about that. I feel like Molly's diagnoses of BPD (chronic lung disease) has changed me. I really do hate that the first two years of my kids life we were practically on house arrest. Was it fair to Luke? Probably not. Did I have a choice....absolutely No. Maybe my personality took it to the extreme?!?! Do I have any regrets...absolutely not. I can honestly say I did everything possible to make sure Molly developed no more scarred lung tissue. We have started this winter off with a few head colds, but nothing major. None of them went to her lungs (insert happy dance). They have enjoyed spending time playing with their cousins. I am pretty sure their cousins have enjoyed them too! Do I still fear a major illness...yes. Probably always will! I do believe she is strong enough to overcome any obstacles that come her way. I know our situation could have been so much worst, so I thank GOD everyday for blessing me with these children! I hope that 2011 proves to be a great as 2010. I would love a low key year filled with love, health and happiness! I hope and wish the same for all of you!
