My life was turned upside the day we found out about Mason's special heart. It is something that has given us an accidental purpose in life... To trust God when we don't understand and to be apart of helping this community raise money, raise awareness, create hope and inspire change. 

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the number 1 killer of ALL Americans? 
In fact someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds!
Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined and congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects. 

This year the Seattle Heart Walk is scheduled for October 20, 212. Save the date and join our team in fighting back!

Here is the link to our team's webpage:

The funds we raise in the Heart Walk will support projects like these: 
Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors’ hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients.
Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research. About 36,000 babies are born with heart defects each year —research is the key to saving babies’ lives 
Getting life-saving information to those who need it most – information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor 

I hope you will join us this year in raising awareness by walking with us and giving what you can; every dollar makes a difference!

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
