My family

This is the most recent picture of my family. This picture was taken 2 years ago by Sergio Lopez . pictured L to R, (back) Me, Karl, Justen, (front) Jessica, Brandon and Austin.

Two years ago Jessica was placed into a home hospice program because she was having frequent lung bleeds and after many tests, it was determined there was nothing more that could be done for her. Someone from a CHD online support group, pdheart, contacted Sergio and paid for some wonderful family portraits. Sergio did a wonderful job and we thank him and our annonymous friend who has given us some priceless gifts.

Little did we know that starting morphine therapy would help prevent lung bleeds. yay! It has been over a year since Jessica has experienced a significant lung bleed.... just traces of blood, wish is such an improvement! Hospice had to discharge her from their care, but they come by to visit every once in a while just for fun. They are also a great team.
