Intermountain Healing Hearts Walk!





On Saturday we had the opportunity to go do the Intermountain Healing Hearts fun run/walk. It was amazing how many people came to this. We walked one mile and then they got a big group picture. They did an angel ceremony where the families that have had a loved one die went and let a butterfly go. It was so good for us to be there and know that we are not the only ones going through this. I met a little girl there that has the same thing Brennan does and she is doing great. She had her surgery and was only in the hospital for ten days. I was so glad to hear that. We will for sure be doing this again next year and I hope we can get a big group to come out and support Brennan.

That looks like a great walk! It is always nice to have a great support group. And cute birthday pictures!

We're glad to have you as part of the group (though I wouldn't wish a heart defect on anyone). My little boy, Nathan, has ToF which I think is pretty close to what Brennan has.

You have an adorable family! Good luck with the delivery. If you have any questions you can email me at ellingerfamily@gmail.com

Shoot. I feel bad I missed this. I'm so glad it was a good experience for you. It always helped me to hear the success stories of others that were going through the same thing. Glad you got to do this!

Those things are always nice to go to and see that you are not alone in your adventure. Maybe next year we will try and make it.
