My son has a congenital heart defect and kidney problems. He has a good prognosis, but I feel like I do so well for awhile, and then fear and anxiety grip me. I feel like I am constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I love him so much that it literally hurts sometimes. I wish I could just put us both in a bubble and seal out the rest of the world. It is exhausting dealing with this mentally.
It does get overwhelming but take a deep breath and look at your son. He makes you smile everyday and loves you unconditionally. Take it one day at a time and try not to worry about tomorrow until tomorrow! That's what I do!
