Where to start... Ok here will be your order in case you need to jump around: 1) Medical Updates, 2) Pre-Christmas, 3) Christmas, 4) Post-Christmas, 5) Tummy Bug and ER Visit, 6) Disaster Return Trip to Macon
2) Sam understood 'Christmas' this year...he understood Santa was coming and would bring presents if he was good, loved the tree and lights, and knew the wrapped presents under the tree were not to be opened until he had the OK on Christmas morning. It was fun to watch him get excited (or scared) when he would see Santa. We went to a neighborhood Santa Breakfast where we got our best "Santa" photo of our several Santa meetings this year. We went to our annual Christmas Party with Kids at Heart, the support group for children and families of children who have had heart surgery at Egleston. Sam got to see his heart friend, Emery, and made some yummy cookies (the highlight for him).
