Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week

We’re right in the middle of CHD Awareness Week (February 7-14) … I think it’s sweet how it leads up to the biggest HEART day of the year!!!  Rudy, Olivia and I enjoyed kicking off the week with a little mini-reunion that included Logan’s mom, Rayme, Nurse Joyce (who kept a watchful eye over Rudy and Logan when they were in the hospital together the fall of 2008)  and Jeni Busta – CHD survivor (who, by the way, was a patient of Joyce’s 28 years ago!!!).  It’s always an encouragement to be with these friends and I’m grateful for our special bond.

Rudy was all smiles with Jeni, Joyce and Rayme!

Not that it has anything to do with CHD Awareness Week but Rudy got to see Max's JV Hockey Team win the league championship on Saturday in a double-overtime, nail-biting finish!!

Rudy's "official" Rifton walker doesn't fit through the door frames in our house so we got him a "grown up" walker that he can easily navigate inside!!  He's quick to pull up and go, go, go.  There may be a few more nicks in our baseboards before he masters it but I kinda like the "distressed" look in woodwork.  Ha Ha

There may be a few more nicks in our baseboards before he masters it but I kinda like the “distressed” look in woodwork anyway. Ha Ha

It’s kind of a fun week…lots of exciting Olympic coverage to watch…a 4-day weekend to look forward to….AND Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!!!  Happy Heart Week dear friends!  ‘Wishing you love and happiness…

  1. Hi Rudy, Our hearts were warmed yesterday with a great celebration of your cousin Michael’s 16th birthday! There was his afternoon swim meet competition at our local H.S. in which he competed. Then we came to my home for his birthday dinner and surprise visit from his sister, Emma, who drove over from K State to join us. They are proof that “It Is Fun To BE A WILSON”! Only thing that would have been more fun would have been if you were here. We always speak of you and your family with great love.

  2. What a journey this has been for all of you! It is fun to see that our friends niece “Jeni” has stayed connected with you. Small world. Just to claify, Joan Simons, our friend from years back is the sister of Jeni’s mother.
    Love and blessings, Jan and Lyle

  3. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
