Last week we celebrated Teresa's one year Anniversary !!!!!
Oh what a year it has been . We have experienced wonderful highs, days filled with hope, laughter and sweet hugs and kisses , to extreme lows, days where all hope felt lost .
In one year Teresa's personality has blossomed. She has a sparkling personality with so much energy and love for life. She is the funniest little "Princess" , always playing pretend with Gemma. ( the two of them are inseparable. Each night as they say good night to each other you would think they were leaving each other forever . Hugs ,kisses , " I love you , no I love you more...").
When someone asks her if those are her sisters, she puts her hand on her hip and says "Oh , that is my family " She loves her family ! We are so blessed with her.
Her health ... she continues to hold on .Thank you to everyone for continuing to pray ! We definitely can feel the prayers . Teresa continues to amaze me how she misses all the viruses that come her way . Lucy has had quite a few and Teresa managed to stay virus free ! Definitely a miracle . Teresa is scheduled to return to CHOP in September for another heart cath.. We are praying for a miracle . We are really starting to notice the look of despair on the Doctors faces as we return each visit. The look of hope or optimism is slipping away .
Watching life through Teresa's eyes for the past year has been a gift that at times was very difficult to understand. I still struggle with why... but I pray GOD will open our eyes to the meaning of it all and bless us with Teresa for many more years.
