Superheroes

My CHD awareness is coming from a different angle today - the siblings. Not only are children with heart conditions brave heroes but their siblings are heroes too!! Sometimes they have to stay with friends or relatives during hospital stays or medical appointments. Sometimes they have to spend Christmas in hotels (lucky Santa knows where to deliver presents!!) or eat Christmas dinner at the hospital. They have to learn to deal with the ups and downs a family has to go through when a child is unwell. Sometimes they feel a bit left out. Some nights Sammy pretends that he and William are in hospital beds and Mum is the nurse, when William has his medicine Sammy likes to have his "pretend medicine" - he knows it is pretend, he knows it is just water in a medicine cup, but it helps him feel a part of what is going on and helps him work through it all. Sammy, Thomas & Jack are also Superheores!!!
He is so cute! What a great Superhero!

It is well done you (and hubby too of course ) for helping the other boys feel part of it all and not left out.

Your wee man has such a six pack.......
Its amazing how siblings can be so loving of each other one moment and at each other throats the offer, but their love always wins out

So true . . . My son is our only child . . . but many of my friends with special needs children have other children as well. It can be a challenge for the sibs, but I think it also gives them a unique perspective and teaches tolerance and empathy . . . Your son is a blessing to your whole family!
