I was reading Aviana Curious George Goes to the Hospital. Right in the middle of the story, for some reason I was reminded of when we got the book for Aviana; when she was in the hospital because her appendix perforated. My throat got all constricted, tears rolled unbidden down my cheeks and my heart felt clinched. For some reason, this time, while reading this story to my sweet smelling smiling blond haired baby, I was reminded of how close we came to losing her.
I just cannot imagine.
I thank God every day for giving us the gift of Aviana Joy.
