Happy Birthday, Cameron!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAMERON! February 10th marked 22 years of Cameron's life. I try not to get too sentimental about my children because the tears start, but I can't help myself. Cameron came into the world on a very cold day. A day later, he was still struggling to breathe. The doctors instructed that a vial of blood be taken from me and Cameron was whisked by ambulance in a raging snow storm to Primary Children's Hospital. The doctors there immediately pushed an empty syringe into his right lung and slowly pulled out the air in his chest cavity so he could fill his lungs with air instead. Within the week, we were able to take him home. Although you cherish each child, the ones that struggle to get here and stay here tend to tug at your heart just a little harder because you almost lost them.
Cameron, I love you dearly! Make the most of this precious life you've been given. Take care of yourself. I wish you every good thing!
