After going through surgery last summer, a heart cath seems like no big deal. Nonetheless, I am nervous and full of dread and ready to get it over with and just wishing we could ride those 4 hours and just go to the beach and the Aquarium and skip the whole thing. Sigh...
We haven't really talked to Zach a whole lot about it yet. I found out after surgery that I have to be careful not to talk about MUSC in earshot of him because he immediately gets fretful and starts in with a barrage of questions. No sense worrying him prematurely. We will start talking to him this week and reassure him about it. I know I can rely on the many prayers of our "heart buddies" to bring us through!
I have to confess that I have taken NO pictures of my children all month! Zero. Zilch. Nada. Bad, bad mommy!!! So, here are some pics of Zach on his recent field trip to a local zoo (taken by his teacher, of course).
His teacher said he was like a mountain goat --- he climbed all over every rock in the place!
He told me about "the COOLEST thing ever"... getting to feed the lambs with a baby bottle (nevermind that it looks like these are baby goats, it was still the COOLEST thing ever!)
They got to take a bus ride around to feed various animals - you can see a llama or alpaca, an ostrich or emu, and some deer in this shot.
