Happy Anniversary, I guess...

It’s my mother in law’s birthday which is why I know that today is the one year anniversary of when I first entered the hospital. For those who I got to “know” better through that experience (my blogging friends and you know who you are)… can you believe it’s been a year?!?!? I cannot. Do we ever fully recover from an experience like that? The scars are slowly healing (although, the other day, one of my incisions from the splenectomy was bothering me… it’s right on my waist line and so sometimes clothing rubs it the wrong way (literally) and I hope that I have learned a little bit better the meaning of the word struggle.
I tried to read my hospital blog a few weeks ago. It still makes me very emotional. I admit, I cried. I guess I am just too busy with the boys to be able to really spend a lot of time thinking about what happened. I don’t know if that is good or bad. And, after all is said and done, I do have Baby Petros, who will be one in a month. He is one sweet pea who can be very grumpy (like his pappous) but who loves to hug and snuggle (unlike his big brother).
I apologize if this feels a bit disjointed, there is so much more that I want to write, but I don’t have the time. This small bit took me all day! So, here are some pics of the boys. Thanks for reading!

No way? A year! That seems amazing. What a year it has been, and what a gift you got at the end!

And, happy Birthday to your MIL.

You are so lucky to have made it through. I thank God everyday for my child and grandchild.
Love from mom

Like I said the other day... God is good! You've really been through so much. Maybe this year you'll have some quiet times to sit and process it all...

Seeing how beautiful and strong you are, it's so hard to believe that all happened just a year ago!

Much love and many thanks to our Lord and Savior,

So, I visited your hospital blog that you refered to. It made me cry, too. I guess I wasn't visiting your blog regularly then. How wonderful to see both of you so healthy and happy! Your boys are beautiful. May this year be full of blessings and celebrations!
