I read a blog post recently about "Mothering Different". It really hit home. It talks about things you dream of while you are pregnant with your first child. Dreaming of your first vacation. Dreaming of watching sports games on the couch on weekends. Dreaming of their first words and first steps. But now, we no longer dream of firsts. We dream of our daughter making it through surgery. We dream of living at home all together, outside of these hospital walls. We dream of Charlee's chest tubes coming out. We dream of being able to hold our daughter with no restrictions, no tubes, no wires. We dream of Charlee being successfully extubated. And tonight we will go to bed, dreaming and praying for a successful day tomorrow. Charlotte Siena Bax is ready, she is ready to succeed.
