Ad Hoc Existence

On April 26, 2006, my son Logan was born with several serious heart defects. This blog is a chronicle of our family's experiences as we struggle with this situation. My primary purpose is personal: I'm writing to cope. But I also hope to use Ad Hoc Existence to reach out to professionals and other families experienced with these types of problems, and eventually even serve as an information resource.

It was with delight that I noticed this morning while checking my bloglines.com account that a new entry had been posted on IS. That delight was gone though as soon as I read what you had posted there. I just wanted to drop a quick note to you to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts. I hope Logan is doing well recovering from his surgery.

As much as I used to enjoy poking fun at your IS persona, I hope for only the best for your boy and for you.

I am shocked, LNS/IS. Good luck to you and your family.

Greetings from a Christian missionary in the Middle East.

Every life is a gift. Grace is all around you. Never forget it. Never fall for the lie that because your child may not be able to do or produce like others he is not as good.

With angels and archangels and all the saints of heaven our intercession for you arises before the throne of God like incense.

My old friend Mr. Savant (it will take awhile to refer to you otherwise): I wish you and your family the best. When you get a chance, check your old IS email account. And as for the old days with the old crew, all I can say is Bravo.

Mssr. Lein,
It is good to see you again, even in your true guise!


Yours,

He's alive. And he's kicking. That's all I can say--and that's saying a lot.

Sarah and I are thinking of you and your family. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of each other. Yes, I plagiarize Jerry Springer daily. :)

My best thoughts with you and your family (I found your link through Brown Trout's site).

All I can do is wish you the best and that your son will get stronger by the day.
