I want to share with everyone that today is Elliott’s birthday. He turned 7 this morning and I remember the day he was born, like it was yesterday.
Elliott is truly our miracle baby because he almost didn’t make it out of the NICU.
After a very long and complicated pregnancy, Elliott was born premature and suffered 2 collapsed lungs and a nasty case of pneumonia. He came very close to dying but fought back. 7 years later, I’m writing this post and wishing him a very Happy Birthday. 🙂
I have to say that coming so close to losing a child really gives you a unique perspective on life.
Seeing Elliott hooked up to everything in the NICU was the scariest thing I have ever experienced in my life. However, I appreciate every single moment I have with him, that much more now.
Happy Birthday Elliott Richard.
I love you so much and you are an absolutely amazing person. 🙂
