I am Orion's Mommy

I’m officially a full-time mom. My last day of work was today, and yes it’s 2am and I already feel the need to be back to a computer. It’s been almost seven years that I have not had a full-time job. I kept asking myself what I would be doing with all my time off. I suppose I’ll be writing more blogs and keeping up with things I need to keep up with. As for now, I am awake because of a nasty cold and can’t sleep. Bo is sound asleep right now. He is the greatest husband ever – didn’t you read the previous blog? He’s great, and he’s mine :)

To get back into my graphic design realm (because it has been already been 9 hours since I left my work place), I’m going to get started on our baby shower invites and party favors. Save the Date! January 28. I get to celebrate my birthday in babystyle.

We met with the pediatric cardiologist a few days ago, and he was kind enough to let us meet another family whose boy also has pulmonary atresia. How perfect he was. Just like any other 18-month old boy running around being a rascal. Mom was strong too. What a pleasure it was to be able to talk to another who has gone through the same thing. We learned Orion can still have a little boy’s life. He can still play soccer, basketball, baseball, and be an active kid like kids should be. I really do need to stop worrying so much.

I should probably get back to bed and rest too. The invites will have to wait until tomorrow.

Congratulations on your new baby boy. My 2 1/2 year old son, Zachary, also has pulmonary atresia. You can see his journey at I would also highly reccomend joining an online support group at It's for parents of children with defects that affect the right side of the heart. It's been an invaluable source of support and information to us. Best of luck!
