Nerves kicking in

As many of you know, Olivia is scheduled to have her second surgery Friday and I am dreading every minute of the next four days. The clock ticking down the minutes makes my stomach sink more and more with worry that my baby will be okay. To say this road has been hard would be a complete understatement. Without your support, it would be even more difficult.

Olivia is doing very well according to her doctors in Philadelphia and they couldn't ask for a better patient. It is nice to hear that they have very little concern that any major complications will occur, but it is major open heart surgery and who knows what will happen when they get in there. As many of the other heart moms know, the feeling of handing your small beautiful child over to a complete stranger is one of the worst feelings in the world. To have to do it repeatedly is even worse. We have complete faith that we have made the best decisions for Olivia and our family. Our family policy right now is  "no regrets". We have all learned that everyday is a gift and we must treasure each and every one. We will try to keep everyone as up to date as possible through this next journey. Thank you for your love, support, and prayers.


  1. We are praying for your family and the beautiful princess.

    1. Hi,

      I sell products to Cam's grandma and have been following Olivias story. I have 2 boys with an endocrine disorder that has been difficult for me to cope with at times (18 and 21 now), cancer, surgeries, etc.... I am sending my best thoughts to you and your family for a full recovery for that beauty of yours and that your family is together again.....Sally Royston


Olivia loves to hear her mommy/daddy read your comments!
