I follow the blog of a family whose youngest child was born a little over a year ago with HLHS which, in simple language, means that he was born with part of his heart missing. This family has been through many, many medical challenges this past year and the year has been very difficult for them and their other three children. However, this blog has three things that make it very entertaining and exciting to read: 1) Both parents are excellent writers, 2) The whole family is VERY creative, and 3) They all have a HUGE sense of humor.

Today's post tells about the family finally being called in to get their H1N1 flu shots and they took pictures as each family member rolled up a sleeve and got the shot. I laughed until I had tears running down my face at their antics.

I feel very privileged to have "met" this family through their blog. I know the grandmother who lives here and we often go to church together to pray for little Rudy, but I am very grateful to have gotten to know this family of hers!


  1. Wow. Who knew cyber-friends could root so deeply in the heart. What a blessing!


  2. Rudy does seem to have a very special family!

  3. I'm going to have to go check it out. They are a sweet family!

  4. Sassy Grandma is so right--we have gotten to know each other so well through blog land that we cheer, we cry we laugh with each other each day! Happy Thanksgiving!
