A Special Visit...

-0266-0286


Yesterday we had the amazing opportunity to meet the Cates family! We have been following this family's journey through NEC,Omegaven and finally multiviseral transplant over the past two years. Their beautiful little boy Carter is an amazing kid and it was so fun to get to hang out with them for the afternoon. They live in Dallas and due to Carter's immunosupression, took a road trip to Boston to meet with their doctors to follow up with transplant but to also look for direction in Carters new issues with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia.

It was no nice to sit down and meet face to face with another family who knows first hand the stresses of raising a medically complex child. Drop by their site to find more out about their little man and a glimpse into their world!

I never know what to post as a comment. I always reread my comments and end up deleting them. "That just sounds silly" I'll say or "I bet she's heard that a million times already Mindy, Just hush." Today is different though, I wanted to let you know that I've never missed a day of updates on your blog and you guys are never far from my prayers.

And aawwww Carter is awesome and his story is amazing! I really do love Gavin's sense of style. He is definately one cool little guy. :) I love the green on Gavin's new wheels from the previous post too!
