I had second thoughts about ever posting this. Jim and I talked about it. He agreed that it’s absolutely honest, but maybe too honest. We debated whether or not it… Read more Hope Snorts →
As I mentioned in a recent post (What I Need Now) a good half of my Facebook Friends are CHD survivors, parents, etc. and as predicted my Facebook feed is lit up with red awareness reminders. It’s a little overwhelming to see the same thing over and over and over again. I did repost this awesome story of a Heart Warrior’s role in the Super Bowl, but so did almost everyone in the Heartland.

Politicians: I took the day off work today to attend an advocacy training at The Children’s Hospital Colorado (they are awesome)! and learned all about how congress people have to balance the party, the constituents, and the politics of decision making. While it didn’t make me all that sympathetic to politicians, it did make me wiser about how to communicate with them about children’s health issues. Also, PLEASE make sure you’re registered to vote since children cannot vote for themselves! Doctors: I heard five amazing doctors speak to a crowd… Read more Politicians, Doctors, and Nurses: All in the Same Day! →
