The question was: Will Caydence remember this trip? Should we wait until she is older?
First we were going to wait.
And then I got to thinking…
This is our life. Right now. Today. Tomorrow is never promised. Not for healthy kids, and especially not for kids with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.
Sure, if you look at Caydence, and you didn’t know us, you would probably see a perfectly “normal/healthy” 4 year old.
But the fact remains that even though she is doing VERY well, that can all change. Instantly.
I don’t want any regrets. I don’t want to wait for a trip, and maybe Caydence will be sicker when she gets older. Who knows? I don’t.
As her birthday approached I began to think about how last year she was in the hospital and had her ulcer. Even though it wasn’t my fault, I felt I owed her a big birthday party this year since she didn’t get one last year.
So, why not take a trip.
Why not live our lives now.
Why not make memories and make my kiddo happy now.
Because today, at this moment, she is healthy and is able to go to on a trip.
So, we have chosen Disney, and I predict it will be a GREAT time. We don’t have a date yet, but we will keep you posted.
