Seriously, the other side of the coin.

Now that I’ve had my say about my furbaby, I need to address something even more serious.  I have a blogging friend, Erin, who has lost two children to congenital heart defects (CHD).  I cannot even fathom how this woman manages to function on a day to day basis, but by God, she does.  She has become quite the advocate for CHD and is going to participate in a local heartwalk in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area in September.  Her goal is to raise $3,000 for CHD awareness and she’s doing pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.  However, the deadline is coming and she has a ways to go.  I’d really love it if you could take a few minutes and check out her blog, and if her story touches you as much as it did me, please make a donation to her.  She also has some cool raffles at her site.  One is for some really neat yard, another for a photography certificate with what looks like a really neat photographer, you can purchase an ad to sponsor her team, buy a t-shirt from Cafe Press, and she has a raffle for a really neat quilt.  I know some of my readers have children, but even if you don’t the things this great lady and her family have gone through in the past 5 years or so is enough to make you want to sit down and cry yourself.  Just take a second, please, and read what she has to say. 

You can also make a donation at  This should take you directly to her team page. 

I just feel so blessed that none of the children in my family have ever had any major illnesses or life-threatening defects, that I felt I had to pass this along.  BTW, I did get a t-shirt and I’m really eyeing the quilt…

Am I just plain odd or what?

I read a couple blogs more on less on a regular basis, but there’s one that has really touched my heart.  Erika and Jay live in near Boston and have a son who was born with HLHS.  I can’t even remember how I found her blog, but as soon as I started reading it I was hooked.  She was pregnant and knew the baby had this heart problem and…. Well, I don’t know.  I guess I was just nosy and wanted to see how everything turned out.  Then, someone in our stake had a baby born with HLHS, but they didnt’ know it, and the baby died, so that made me want to keep up with Erika’s blog all the more, just to make sure everything was okay.  Continue reading
