There have been a tough few days this week.  Our dear little grandson had open heart surgery at Starship Children's Hospital  on Wednesday. After a couple of anxious days he is now recovering slowly, breathing on his own and starting to progress (his Mum & Dad say the small steps are very exciting) and his very brave parents describe him as "a little trooper".   .

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in our heart"  - Winnie the Pooh

The above quote is certainly true just now.  It is so hard being so far away but we will be with them soon. We are so lucky to have the skilled surgeons and technology of today.

This is a page of Zac I created at the Embellish It Raincliff Retreat two weeks ago.  We were given a pack of Authentique papers to create with and it was perfect for these cute photos.

We had known of Zac's heart condition since he was 3 days old but the first 5 months have been without incident.  He looked so perfect on the outside but not so on the inside.   Get well soon our gorgeous wee man.

Wishing you all an enjoyable and safe Easter.   Take Care.

Thanks for visiting today.

Here's wishing Zac a good recovery - it's truly amazing what can be accomplished medically. Hope Mum and Dad are feeling well - beyond difficult handing your baby over to a surgical team.

wishing your wee man a speedy recovery and no, it's not easy being so far away when you really just want to be right there.

Big hugs.
