I am a 37yr old mom that would do just about anything to have her kids,whole family have a "normal life" again. About year ago I got sick ,went to the doctor got meds and waited to get better 2wks passed and I wasn't gettin better. Went to the dr again same thing new meds, I did for about a month then it got to the point that no matter what I did I could not breathe. So I went to the ER they said that maybe I had a blood clot in ,they did their test,X-rays,blood work. Well the dr came back and told me that I was having congestive heart failure,and they rush me to bigger hospital,they preform and angiogram and My heart was only working at 15%.since then I've been in the hospital 22times stayed 19 of those. I have had 5 surgeries and waiting one more,I now have a pacemaker/difibulator on my heart. For the rest my life I will have to take medicine to keep my heart going. Now my biggest problem is keeping my blood pressure up it goes dangerously low. My kids have had to endure the worst that's what I feel, seeing me sick in and out of hospital, having to see me lose lots of weight ,sleeping for 3-5 days at a time but what hurts the most is not be able to do everything we used to as a family. I have many restriction on what I can do and where I can go. There's times when I'm very weak and can't even bathe myself. I remind them everyday how special they are to me and what they mean to me. My oldest girl is my shoulder, I know I can always lean on her and can count on her to keep the house going, my 2nd girl has a beautiful smile she reminds me to smile , my 3rd girl this one is always getting herself into some mess she keeps me on my feet even when I don't want to, my baby girl reminds about forgiveness and everlasting love and my baby boy reminds me why I fell in love with his dad and to laugh its helps heal the soul. So I believe my kids deserve a great Christmas , new shoes and clothes. They don't even ask for those things they know we are struggling. And I love them even more for it nobody could of ask for such beautiful kids and I'm grateful for them every minute of every day.
