How is your child's scar? Is it fading over time? Do you worry about comments they may receive about it?

I think that Maddie's scar looks amazing. I also don't refer to it as a scar. I call it her beauty mark. :lol:

This is her the other day (being unbelievably silly! :lol: )


And if anyone speaks negatively about her scar... I may wring some necks. :lol:

Wow! Her scar looks amazing! And she looks like a lot of fun! What a cutie!

Lukes is healing well. I plan to tell him that's the mark of a very strong, brave little boy. They told us it will continue to fade over time. I'm not worried about comments but I may change my mind once one is made.

We just recently met a guy that is working for my dad (in CONSTRUCTION, no less!) that also has tetralogy of fallot. He's 26. The doctors told his parents he wouldn't live beyond age 17. He goes to church with my dad most weeks, and Maddie just loves him. I almost wonder if she somehow just feels a connection-YKWIM? :huh: He's really a nice guy-he wants children but hasn't found the right woman, and his love of little ones shows. :lol: It's also really encouraging to just know him. Here's a guy with the same defect as my daughter-and he's proving the doctors more wrong every single day. :) He has really bad scarring-they went in through the chest once (and removed his sternum!) and they went in through the shoulder blade/side-that scar is really big! I'm glad they've gotten more advanced!
