Happy Anniversary

On Sunday I was officially 6 months post operative from my heart surgery! So far no complications, no infections, and my new heart valve works great. To celebrate my Mom got me some heart balloons and my awesome sister Holly got me a new brag book with a heart on it. Not that any of you were wondering, but if you asked me if I would rather have another heart surgery or another delivery or c-section, I’d say heart surgery without question. It was so much easier to adjust to a new valve than a new baby and I would way rather have to heal from a broken sternum than have the daunting task of losing 60lbs again. I am not saying I don’t want another girl, I am just saying that I have total compassion, sympathy and empathy for pregnant women and new Moms, it is a massive undertaking.

Go Hillary! And you were strong enough to recover from it with a baby at home. I'm with you - childbirth is a massive undertaking. It's amazing so many of us do it more than once :)
