How did extended family react when they learned of your child's CHD? How supportive were they?

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

My extended family was AMAZING!

We were told to celebrate Maddie's first birthday with a bang. They gave us no assurance that she'd be leaving the hospital with us when she had her surgery. When my family in MI found out that we'd been told that, scads of them caravanned down together to see her and celebrate her birthday. They brought so many gifts and cards and were so supportive. It still makes me tear up to think of how wonderful they all were.

Here's one shot of (not even all) the people! Throughout the afternoon, the people from church and family that showed were probably up around 100. And that was only a minute number of family, actually!

We had to rent a gymnasium.

And for fun, here's her ginormous cake. LOL

Not too much with the extended family. My Mom was my rock & DH's also. My friends were extremely supportive.

Thanks Yvonne (Jaidynsmum) for my beautiful siggy!

My family was really supportive and they still are. I don't know how I would have made it through everything without them
