This weekend we celebrated the one-year anniversary of Felix’s transplant — often known in the transplant community as his “Life Day.”
One year ago, this happened:
We celebrated with a big old shindig in my parents’ back yard, complete with bouncy castle. We tried to invite as many local friends as we could who’d helped support us through Felix’s awful first year, about 80 guests (wishing we could invite more!).
Our son, who was supposed to die, is alive and well!
It was a perfect day, too — sunny and warm, but not hot, with just a wisp of a breeze.
Here’s a quick photo dump for you:
I think he liked the balloons.
Thank you, God, for letting us keep our boy.
