One of my childhood friend Jasmine Gilgosch who has CHD is doing this heart week post on Facebook. I know allot of people not award of this and she gave me permission to post each one on my blog. I been following her story for a while and I believe you should too. Below is day four and I hope we all learn something because I’ll be posting all of them.

Day #5- Heart Parent; My amazing, wonderful, fantastic, beautiful mother. She took me in when I was six months old and stood by my side through every doctor appointment, EKG, stress test, surgery, and everything else in between. She’s managed my medications, made my doctor appointments, made sure I had a healthy and controlled but normal life. She made sure even though I had CHD I lived like a normal kid. She gave me birthday parties at the bowling alley, movie theater, a hotel for my sweet sixteen! She let me have sleepovers and pool parties. She cooked for me and my friends, let me date, and just live life while maintaining my CHD.

I’m so thankful for this woman. She’s saved my life countless times in more ways than one and in some ways she has no idea about. I’m lucky to call her my mother. I love and miss her so much and can’t wait to see her again in July.
