I am the mother of four boys ages eight and younger. One of our little ones is medically complex and was diagnosed a few days after his text-book-delivery via scheduled c-section. To say that we have come far is a great understatement. Together with our little blonde-haired, blue-eyed wonder, we have scaled mountains, crossed oceans and eventually adjusted to our “new normal” —and we would do it all again if it means getting him to where he is today.
Unfortunately, we were not prepared to raising a child with medical conditions. There was no advance warning, no notification, simply a curve ball that came and hit us upside the head when we were told to take him to the emergency room at five days old.
This is common to most families when they start their medical journey. You are flying at the seat of your pants, unprepared without a road map…. Click here to read my “Raising a Child with Medical Conditions” which includes a invaluable guide to adjusting to your “new normal”. I am honored to guest blog today at Sleeping Should be Easy. Please comment on my article on her blog – hopefully she will invite me back to play, if she sees I have awesome friends.
