Heart Day #3.

I can say with almost 100% certainty that Ellie would not be here without the open heart surgery performed at age 5.5 months.

I'm so thankful for that surgery.

I'm so thankful for our girl.

This summer, she took great care to put sunblock on her "zipper," her open heart surgery scar.

Health didn't come easy or cheap, and three years later, I want to pause to appreciate how far this child has come.

Happy heart day, Ellie!

(And thanks to Matt for these photos.)

Pin It!


  1. Happy Heart Day Ellie. We celebrated our second just a few days ago. I have never been so appreciative of the health care we have in this country as I did on that day.

  2. Chills. We love you Ellie, you're my inspiration!
