Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Month
I was born with several heart defects. Although, mine were not immediately life threatening they did make my childhood a little more, well, unique than others.
I remember playing in the snow and being told to go back inside because my lips were blue. I'd be swimming and be told to go sit at the edge of the pool because my lips were blue. I didn't quite understand how my lips could be blue when it was nearly 100 degrees outside.
