Growing up and hand me downs
Since his heart was functioning properly for the first time ever, Sam had the ooomph to do things without flaking out every few minutes. He wanted to use his new found energy to do so much, he was suddenly and unexpectedly into everything, but his bedtime was still 7pm and he really needed it.
One day he came home from school in great excitement. "Mummy" he pronounced in his precise little way, "if you get me the wood I will build a boat for the whole family, and we can go on the sea in it!" I felt so sad to think that such enthusiasm and excitement would be crushed when he found out what the reality was.
