This Boy

Happy Birthday little man! (How long will he be okay with me calling him that?) He truly looked like a little old man when he was born 9 years ago. He had his slicked back hair and his heart was beating at about 250 beats per minute. Twice as fast as most newborns. He was in the ICU for a week or so until the doctors could figure out the right combination of medicine to give him. When none of it was working, the cardiologist came in with the baby paddles. (You know, the kind they use for heart attack victims, except these were for little ones. )Right as the doctor was ready to use the paddles on him, he decided to have his heart beating normally. We quickly learned that is his personality. He truly marches to the beat of his own drum!
