The Life of a Heart Parent…as Told by Memes

If you’ve read this blog for more than, like 5 minutes, you’ll know that I absolutely love memes. They’re a hilarious way to capture those random moments in life and time. I’m a big believer in laughter and while the life of a Heart Parent isn’t an easy one, I think it’s good for us to find the humor when we can. I’m not at all making light of our situation, but I do find that whenever I see something online that resonates deeply with me as a Heart Dad, that I tend to find it even more uplifting. So Heart Parents, I see you…you’re doing a great job. This is for you: the life of a Heart Parent…as Told by memes…


Hospital Life

SleepingInChairMeme

The STRUGGLE of trying to get remotely comfy on those skin-eating vinyl monstrosities! And, of course, when your kid finally falls asleep, you decide you can finally shift just an inch and then the chair/couch in the room releases one of those vinyl fart noises that could wake up a bear.

PulseOx Meme

I’ve actually gotten pretty good at silencing those machines. But it never fails that once you and your heart kid settle down, the machine is like, “Let me play you the song of my people!”

Maybe I’m not too sharp, but there were lots of times I’ve listened in on physician rounds and thought, “Was that even English?”

BRUH. Don’t even get me started.


When You Finally Get Home

When you finally bring your Heart Baby home from the hospital and everyone and all their homies wanna come to your house, but you’re not having it, because infections are real and scary.

When the Pharmacy (once again) Doesn’t Have the Meds Right

It is insaaaaaane how much healthcare costs!

Appointments…Appointments Everywhere

To be honest, they’re all pretty nerve-wracking.

AwwwYeah

“See you in 6 months” never sounded so beautiful.

Flu Season is Hermit Season

In the End, This is What It’s All About

We love our kiddos! They’ve been through so much and they do it with such bravery: whenever they accomplish anything, it’s a huge moment to celebrate and tackle them with all the hugs!

Keep being awesome, Heart Families!
