I never intended that this blog would keep going after Birmingham, but it has, and one of Evan's nurses said to me once that it would be nice for him to look back on...
So Happy Birthday Son, you're one today!
And it's been an eventful year, there's been highs and there's been lows, there's been smiles and there's been tears, but you're here today a year old, and blessed with a fantastic family around you...
A big sister who loves you enough to play with all your toys just to make sure they are safe for you ;-)
And we've been as equally blessed with the help, support and love we have received from family and friends.
1 year old - 365 days - 47 nights spent at home - 1 major heart operation - 2 bowel operations - 3 central line operations (2 in & 1 out) - 1 chest drain - 1 emergency crash call - 3 weeks in Birmingham - 2 aeroplane flights - 4 different wards in the Royal (mostly Barbour though) - 1 sister - 1 mother - 1 father - 1 family and love that can never be measured x
As one thing you'll learn as you grow up stand by your family as your family will always stand by you.
