She can Fly! ✨

In mid-August of this year, we were going on a family vacation: Orlando, Florida to go to Disney World!! And not just our family… everyone! Gramma, Uncle Mark, Auntie Sarah and Anna! It was going to be great. Buuuut at the beginning of August, Mia was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) mean she has high blood pressure in her lungs, and as a result it’s hurting her heart and making it impossible to breathe. If she had gotten on a plane… the altitude to which it flew would’ve made the pressure worsen and she could’ve died!! If we found out that she had PH even two weeks later than we did – she would have been ON that plane. I really don’t even want to try to imagine what would’ve happened if she was. Needless to say, we never made it to our big family vacation. That was hard. Of course Thea was refunded, but still; that stung. But we handled it as a PHamily. I mean really… Allie got over it pretty quick with Shopkins 🙄 Mia suggested we buy them for her to soften the blow. She’s such a thoughtful kid, seriously. Aaaaaaand then there’s Today! Today we have written proof from Sick Kids Hospital stating that Mia’s symptoms are stable enough to be Cleared to Fly! Disney… Here we come!! 

Woo-Hoo!!
