About two years ago, my kindergartner started complaining of tummy aches.
After a series of doctor's appointments and tests, my husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary in a hospital in LA on pins and needles as our little boy had his first major tummy surgery. You can read all about his malrotation story here.
Four days later, we brought our son home on Mother's Day. It was the best Mother's Day ever knowing he had a much needed surgery that would not only end his tummy aches, but that would prevent some potentially serious issues with his intestines.
This time of year as I celebrate our anniversary and Mother's Day, I am thankful for the health of our two sons and the opportunity to be their mom! God has blessed my husband and I with two adorable, smart, crazy kids!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! In my opinion, it's not just a day to celebrate mothers, but families! Enjoy those kiddos who made you a momma!
