Yesterday was Maddie Allred's first birthday! Maddie is Teagan's bff heart sister and the girls were born one week and one day apart- one year ago! Since Maddie is HRHS and Teagan is HLHS we always say that together they have one whole perfect heart! We spent the evening last night at Maddie's party and had a great time. It was so heartwarming to see her ripping wrapping paper, eating her cake, and crawling circles around everyone at the party! With Teagan's first birthday coming up this Saturday, last nights tears of joy were the start of what will most certainly be an emotional week. I'm so thankful for these girls and the bond that they share and for Maddie's mommy who has been there for me when I needed someone who understands.
One of the many benefits of having a heart sister- sat monitors!(We snuck in a sat check during the party, thanks Katie... It says 87- not bad!)
We started this blog to share the latest happenings at the Maxwell house and our daughter Teagan's 'heart journey'. Teagan was born March 21st 2008 with a congenital heart defect called Critical Aortic Stenosis which led to Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. (HLHS)
