So I’ve finally dragged myself around to writing this blog come diary! Nearly four months into being a mummy and already it seems like I can’t remember what life was like before Tommy. In an effort to be able to remember these wonderful days, I figured that now was as good a time as any to get writing.
Tom is just over 16 weeks old now and is our real life little superhero. 15 weeks and 3 days ago he was undergoing open heart surgery – an arterial switch to repair a heart defect detected at his 20 week scan. Tom was born with transposition of the great arteries, a defect described by one doctor as ‘incompatible with life without surgery’. Today Tom is our little chunky monkey, fighting fit and ready for a lifetime of adventure.
