It's October & I'm feeling reflective..

Since my last post, we've gotten good 'n settled back in at home from our week-long PICU stay. Clay ended up having a touch of pneumonia--which he hasn't totally kicked, but he is feeling much, much better! It has been a set-back, but he's getting better all the time.

I can't believe it is October. In 24 days, our miracle man will be ONE!!!!

We are planning a 'Clayton Cash Birthday Bash' for October 20th, 4pm, at Nana & Pappy's house. Come one, come all! We will be writing support letters for Senate Bill S.3396, the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research Bill. If you can't come to the Bash, we would still love for you to send in letters! It would be the BEST birthday present for Clay :)

I've been looking back at pictures from this time last year and it's bringing back a flood of emotions..
This time last year was full of nervous, anxious, uncertain excitement. I was wandering around with CCR's line "there's a calm before the storm" repeatedly rolling through my head. Boy, was that the truth.
Even with weekly trips to the doctor for ultrasounds, we still had absolutely NO idea how our CDH journey would unfold.

 We did get lots of cute 'pictures' of baby bug in the womb, though ;)

I've been feeling reflective lately, and I think I'll try to post a special picture/memory every day or two this month, just as a reminder of how far we've come in a year.

Y'all bear with me :)

Love & peace to you all!


  1. Not sure if I told you this yet, but Clay and I share a birthday :) Can't believe he's almost 1!

  2. I know that you feel you have been blessed by Clay but I think that Clay and the rest of us are blessed by you and Eric...what spectacular parents you are and how wonderful you have been to share your journey with all of us. We far too often take our healthy babies for granted and you have made us realize what a gift from God each child is....thank you for all you do ...for Clay and your family's journey...much love to all of you!
