As many of my secondlife friends will know, I became a grandmother in July.
It’s still very surreal to me to imagine that my life has moved on so much and I’m where my mum was 26 years ago.
I’m now who my mum was, but only living in a different era and country.
She passed away in 2012 and not a day goes past that I don’t recollect my thoughts and wonder if she is proud of me, smiling, laughing, mad, and the list goes on.
So, anyhow I became a grandmother to the most exquisite future man who just makes me smile right now as I write this.
As many of my pixel friends and real life friends know, at his 6 week check up they discovered his heart wasn’t beating as it should and was immediately referred to hospital for an ECG and scan. From that was he whirlwind referral to the Royal Brompton in London where they discovered a large hole in his heart, a number of smaller holes and a coarctation of the aorta.
Little Mason was admitted immediately and within 10 days, underwent open heart surgery at on just over 2 months of age.
It’s amazing when I look back how brave, strong and wonderful he is. But even more so my daughter who sat by his side each day.
I am thankful every single day that they discovered this when they did. Unbeknown to us, Mason was slowly losing his life up until that point.
I just wanted to share how thankful I am. Mason will have further surgery later this year, but he is doing fantastically well.
Isn’t science amazing!!
I’ve included the video I made at the time as it was carthactic doing it. No great graphics but it was for him. One day he can watch it and understand more how special he is.
