Wolfgangs’s Birthday

I think I am more excited about Wolfgang’s birthday than he is. I want so much to erase all of the pain from this last year for him. He is our baby. Wolfgang has struggled his entire life for normalcy. He came into this world fighting for his life and he is truly a miracle.
He was born with a severe congenital heart defect. Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome. His left ventricle did not develop in vitro. He has endured three open heart surgeries, many bouts of pulmonary problems and several close calls. His home for the first 5 years was primarily Texas Children’s Hospital.  He won the hearts of every nurse and doctor he came in contact with. He never complained, he never once questioned why he had to go through all of this. At one point he was on 29 different medications, just to keep him alive. We were told there was a high potential for severe handicaps,  and the possibility he would not even survive beyond the first week. Now jump forward 14 years. Wolfgang is a caring, amazing young man. Very intelligent, articulate and a joy to be with. This kid, we thought would never grow, (he was a tiny little thing) is extremely tall for his age, and quite good looking. 🙂 He takes no medications other than an aspirin each day. He has always shown strength and compassion.This past year has been difficult for all of us. Wolfgang has grown up and been such a big help to me and my healing. I am so very proud and blessed to be his mom… Happy Birthday Boo!! I love you to the moon and back!!
