Life lately

I haven't been motivated to blog much recently, we're still waiting for Martha's letter from our last appointment and I kind of feel like our lives are on hold until that letter finally arrives. All I want to know is whether or not Martha will have surgery during the school holidays or if we are waiting until her next appointment (which has already been booked for the end of August)

I can't make any plans more than a week or so in hand, I can't enjoy looking forward to summer with the kids because I don't know if we'll be here. So we are living week-to-week, which isn't much fun. I'd love to go away for a few night with the kids, I know we've already had our "holiday" for this year; but I see so many of my friends across Facebook/ Instagram sharing photo's of their Holidays and I can't help but want another Holiday.

Anyway, here are some pics of what we've been up to since I haven't been blogging much.

For those of you who don't follow the blog regularly, we took Martha Grace for her 3 month check-up to Great Ormond Street at the beginning of the month and we're still waiting to find our when her next surgery will take place. Part of me wants to get it out of the way with ASAP and then the other part of me wants to be able to enjoy the summer and her 2nd birthday first.

We didn't have any particular plans for Saturday, we had a bit of a lazy morning really. Then we decided we would head out for lunch to a little cafe that we like for lunch, it's a lovely little place called Ty Golchi. When we got back in the car we thought we'd take the kids for Ice Cream but we had no idea where. We ended

Taking a Cardiac Baby swimming

You may have noticed Martha Grace wearing a red wetsuit in our Center Parcs photo's. No it isn't to hide her scar, and no it's not a floatation device - it's job is to keep Martha warm when in the water.

We've been members of the Heartline charity ever since I was pregnant with Martha, every quarter we receive a magazine filled with the inspirational stories of other Heart Warrior's journey's.

As well have running an online forum and a closed Facebook group offering support to Heart Families like mine, there are several other benefits to becoming Heartline Members.
