i have great friends

yesterday i had coffee with another heart mom... actually, another HLHS mom, to be specific. it was great. the kids were happy to see each other, too... well, they would have been, i'm sure, if they weren't suffering from heart failure and a double ear infection/tube infection, respectively. but we moms had a good time. :) anyway, i was telling her (and i've recently written on My Simple Life) about how horrible i feel with the whole food situation with asher, and the choice i have to make every mealtime. he wants food, but it could kill him, but so would a heart attack from crying if i withhold it from him. well, my friend wrote on my wall on Facebook today. here's what she wrote:

I had a thought yesterday when walking home... about how you feel a little bit of guilt when giving into Asher's wanting to eat... I was thinking there IS going to be a point when he will no longer need the tube right? and sure its dangerous for him to drink and eat...but how is he ever going to learn if you don't give him the experience.... You're a great mom!
you know, this little wall post really helped. what an encouragement on an otherwise horrid day. so, thank-you, T, for being such a great friend. and if you need anything, just let me know. i'm not far if you need me...
