This week is near and dear to my heart.

My Maddie was diagnosed with tetralogy of fallot with pulmonary atresia on Feb 2, 2007 (just before her first birthday). She had her first cardiac cath on Feb 7, and her first birthday was one week later-Feb 14. There was lots of stuff going on at the hospital that week because of it being CHD week, and we learned a lot by being there.

With her being born on the 14th-at the close of CHD awareness week and ON "heart" day, it's just weird for us... *shrug* Coincidences, yes... but still meaningful to us.

I just found out that DH work is promoting awareness during heart week!!!

He works at a ski resort, and they are selling the TCHIN stickers all week for $1, to employees and customers to raise money for research. Then, on Valentine's Day they've asked all employees to wear red and donate $5 to the American Heart Association They have A LOT of employees, so hopefully everyone will participate and help raise tons of money!!!

He's going to ask management this week who's organizing it, I'm going to try to get a Heart Walk team started with the resort this year!!!
