21 Today!

There have been a few times in your life when I thought we might lose you. When you were a tiny baby, fighting off a massive infection that threatened to overwhelm you, through your first transplant, and when the second transplant didn't go ahead this February ....

But through all of that we have gained a whole load of experiences that we would never have had; mostly good, and had a whole network of people come into our lives, that we never would have met; had it not been for you. You've taught us so many lessons in patience, acceptance and perseverance.

Through the good times...

The not so good times....

The "Barlies experiments"...

The logistics of coming home with a weeks worth of dialysis gear in your little Toyota corolla (Nana car :P).

Your enjoyment of my cooking...

A special birthday dinner....

By just being you. Congratulations Callum on making it this far! Love from Mum.


  1. 21 on the 21st eh! Congratulations to Callum. Thanks for sharing your special family day with us. So what was for dinner then?
    We have a David turning 21 in milestones : ) Much love

  2. Well, now you've made me all teary and I don't even know you. It may be hormones or I may just feel congratulations are in order.

  3. Hi Sweetie! What a beautiful post for your sweet son. It gave me tears in my eyes!! I have five boys, so I understand that special bond between a mom and a son. I hope your son is doing well and continues to do so. Happy Birthday Callum!! I hope this is your best year yet!
    Jacqui, thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me such a KIND comment!! You made my day :)
    Bunny Hugs,
