As I mentioned earlier, Iggy and I have been tremendously grateful for all the messages and gestures of support we have received from our friends and family this week. But honestly, we already knew that we are very lucky to have a lot of terrific people in our lives.
What has been more of a surprise to me has been the support we have gotten from other parents of kids with CHDs. I know that all of these parents face huge challenges of their own, and I am truly in awe to see that so many of these people have enough left over after taking care of themselves and their families to reach out to someone else in need. I hope I can do the same for someone else someday.
