About me

Occupation Full time kid
Introduction This is a blog where I share our joy for Summer. I started in 2010 to keep our family and friends uptodate during one of Summer's therapy periods. It has evolved into a diary of our family events, medical appointments, therapy sessions and child development. Summer was born in 2006 at 29 weeks. My labour was brought on when she ran out of space in my (unknown at the time) heart-shaped, two compartment, uterus. She was born by emergency C-section, when her umbilical cord was blocking her exit. The days that followed proved challenging; a grade 4 bleed, pneumothorax, VP shunt surgery and a litany of tests and reports. Summer spent 2 months in the NICU and recovered like a champ, being discharged 2 weeks before her original due date. In her first year she was diagnosed with CP, right side hemiplegia. In her second year, she was diagnosed with strabismus, so we added ophthalmology to our list of follow-ups. Summer shares her inspiring life with me and my husband Don. She sweetens our life with her infectious personality and reminds us to enjoy life's journey.
