Exactly one year ago, this week, was the scariest time of my life.
It was that week, through a slew of doctor appointments, specialist appointments, and medical procedures, that we learned that our sweet baby girl did not, in fact, have any sort of scary medical condition causing her anisocoria. Instead, it was diagnosed as simply a harmless congenital condition.
Looking back, one year later, I am beyond grateful that my baby girl is healthy, happy, and flourishing.
This week, as I reflect back on that terrifying time and focus on all that I have to be so very thankful for, I will snuggle my girl extra tight. Say extra prayers of gratitude. Look more deeply into those beautiful, anisocoria-ed blue eyes. And be so, so incredibly grateful that she is mine and I am hers.
Thank you, Lord, for my beautiful, healthy baby girl.
