We made it and man were there times this year that we thought we’d never get here.
One year ago today, Lennyn Marie Lyons made her dramatic entrance into this world 10 weeks early and at 4 pounds 4 ounces. Since then she has completely changed our world for the better.
In one year Lenn has faced things that most people would not face in a lifetime. Prematurity, a very rough csection, a bilateral brain bleed, Hydrocephalus, Epilepsy, Sepsis, Chronic lung disease, 4 brain surgeries, a staph infection in her brain, extended stays in 3 different hospitals, and now a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis- Lennyn clearly has had the odds against her from day one. It’s clear to see that Lennyn is a WARRIOR. Even on our grimmest days, she has always bounced back and prevailed.
Lennyn has taught us strength, love and has humbled us. We are truly better people than we were a year ago. Although I wish for no one to be dealt Lennyn’s hand, I wish everyone had the opportunity to have their ah-ha moment of soul searching and really GET what MATTERS in life.
Lennyn, you are a love filled ball of sass, wonder, and perseverance. To watch you evolve daily, regardless of the obstacles in your way, is inspiring. I don’t think I will ever accomplish what you have in such a short time, in my entire life. Not everyone is so fortunate to witness daily miracles and I’m so fortunate to be able to do so. My gratitude for this child is immeasurable.
You deserve the easiest days to come. It’s been one hell of a ride but the most rewarding one we have ever been on. The world is a better place because you are in it.
Happy Birthday sweet girl. Thank you for everything you have done for us. Being your momma and so unconditionally loved by you has been my favorite job yet.
You left yourself huge shoes to fill this year. Let’s get it girl!!!
