I just wanted to say what I was thankful for.
I am thankful for many things in my life. This year has been a rough and emotional year. It started out with a bang and than we found out Sean suffered an in utero stroke, and once we were able to start to breathe again we found out that there is a whole in his brain, okay starting to breathe again and than we found out he is having seizures.
He has been through so much already being 7 weeks premature, having to go through tons of stuff after he came out but when we found out about the stroke he had been through a lot before he came out.
He is truly my hero and a survivor on many levels. I am thankful for every inch, kick, bite, kiss, hug, crying, temper tantrum, jumping, hitting, laughing, giggling, grinning, frowning, serious, sad, excited, overwhelmed, melt down, smiling, singing, humming, dancing, happy, mad, loving, caring, talking, running, screaming, learning, living, loving part of Sean...etc I think you get the idea. I love everything about him and thankful for everything he is. I am also thankful for my caring husband and all of the help and support he gives to me and to Sean.
No label that he has been givin- sensory issues, cerebral palsy, stroke, epilepsy, or medical diagnosis he has been giving is going to change any of it. I love him more and more every day.... and of course I am thankful for everything else in my life.
He has come a long way and will continue to succeed with the help of everyone around me and all of his therapies and therapists. PT, OT, Aquatic OT, SPT, DT.
Above is when he was first born and till now this is a true survivor and my hero.
