Walks all over the ward, feeding the fish, having visitors and receiving unexpected gifts.
|Feeding Ruby, the Siamese fighting fish.|
|These quilts are made and donated by a very special lady to Heartkids for children like Sam. We chose this one with lions on it, to remind Sam of his courage and for Jesus who looks after Him.|
|This dinosaur balloon was sent today by our friends Demi and Piper in Longreach and made Sam smile no end.|
Everyone who walks into Sam's hospital space remarks at how wonderful it is thanks to all of your beautiful cards and messages. His walls are overflowing with colour and messages of love and encouragement. You kindness has made our little corner of the hospital a bright and cheerful place to live, where other patients, nurses and doctors also like to visit. And because we have received so many amazing gifts Sam has also been bringing cheer to other kids who have nothing to brighten their bedside.
It still has not sunk in that we are on this side of the Fontan surgery. I think at this stage Don and I are living on adrenalin. All I know is that my heart is overflowing with a gratitude that will never end. I can see a light an the end of this tunnel and it is beckoning and bright. That light is our future and all that we have to look forward to. So with each new day we step forward, trusting an believing that God has it all in hand.
