A different kind of Valentines Day love....

I'm not big on Valentines Day (to the relief of my husband I'm Sure). However the day is special to me for another reason, 5 years ago today I got to take my beautiful baby girl home from hospital. So what you say? Well the ward I was taking her home from was not maternity but a paediatric cardiac ward. After a rough first month including the diagnosis of complete Atrioventricular Septal Defect and open heart surgery she was finally coming home. The irony of Valentines day being about "hearts" was not lost on me! That was the best gift I could ever receive :-)


  1. Special indeed! Enjoy your day with your precious family. x

  2. What a beautiful story - have a wonderful day with your family.

  3. Really beautiful. Happy heart day to you and your family!

  4. That is a special day for you. My heart kids is 3 now and every Spetember I recall the day of his surgery and the day we brought him home. We've never looked back....I hope you have been as lucky.
