Ski Day

In February Matt took Nicole, Corinne, and Spencer skiing. This was Spencer's second time skiing, ever, and his first since his transplant. When Spencer was waiting for a heart we asked a lot of questions about what his life would be like after a transplant. Before his illness I knew NOTHING about heart transplants so I pictured a sickly little boy with very little energy who would get winded walking around the house. One of the nurses surprised me greatly by telling me that they had one little transplant patient who was now a competitive skier. I could hardly imagine something like that to be possible. It was my first glimmer of hope! 

Now, looking at these pictures, that conversation with our nurse comes to mind. Go Spencer!!



Here are Spencer and Nicole rounding the corner just after coming off the lift

Happy face!


My cute little snow bunnies!

I find skiing to be impressive whether or not you've had a heart transplant. Way to go Spencer!

Like a fish to water- he's a natural. I'll bet there will be many more trips of this kind~
