Heart Smiles

You can't help but smile, when you have this face looking at you.

While yesterday did not produce the results that we had been waiting and hoping for, it's smiles like these that remind us about the journey we started.This journey has had several downs but also extreme highs. Ron and I can honestly say that this year has been the most incredible year of our lives.

The truth is that we like to fool ourselves into believing that we have some kind of control over the situation. We educate ourselves, stay on top of the situation, advocate (a lot), and try to make a difference in the Israeli heart community. But at the end of the day, we are no more in control over this situation, then any other situation.

We have faith. We believe that G-d is in control. We feel very strong in our beliefs and we know that G-d has provided us with the perfect doctors and surgeons to take care of Tehilla. It's unnerving that we are going into surgery with an added risk. But we are also going into surgery with benefits.

Today, Tehilla is healthy and strong. She is not going into surgery in a critical state. She is doing well- exactly how they would like her to be. And in all other areas, she is shining.

So, that is where I will spend my energy: in smiling with Tehilla and holding strong to my beliefs.


  1. What a smile! first smile of the day. Thank you Tehilla!!!
