Happy New Year!

Wow, can you believe it’s already 2016?  Where the heck did 2015 go?  Anyways, I wanted to take a moment and wish all my friends out there a Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 brings you lots of joy, hope, and fun!

So what’s ahead for us?  Well I’ll obviously be posting more regularly on here as 2016 gets into full swing.  This is a big year for us, though, because we will be starting preparations for Nolan’s third (and hopefully final) surgery, the Fontan procedure.  To be honest, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was nervous about it…but if there’s one thing Nolan has shown, it’s that he can persevere with the best of ’em.  I’m confident his medical team is going to do an amazing job.

But hey, I’m getting ahead of myself…he’ll have an echo and a cath first, so all that will happen over the next several months.  In the meantime, because Nolan is Nolan, he is currently struggling with a bit of the sickness: he’s got an ear infection (looks like his ear tubes finally fell out) and has been having a rough go of it for the last several days.  He’s taking his antibiotics, so hopefully he’ll be back to his regular self in no time.

As we work on getting him better, we plan to jump back into the new year full steam ahead with lots of laughs, love, and fun.

Have a great new year, everyone…and enjoy this, which I found hilarious:
