Happy birthday Sharon!

22 Years ago my eldest was born after just 28 weeks. In those day they didn't have yet those injections before birth that will develop the lungs in cases of emergency and Sharon was born without and had to be on oxygen for 2 weeks, which badly damaged her eyes. Doctors said before the C section, she would probably not live, she would have damage to heart, lungs and kidneys and be probably deaf and blind. But she was not. She had an open ductus botali, a bloodvessel between heart and lungs, which miraculous closed itself the night before the scheduled operation when she was 8 days. She got sepsis, a bloodinfection and was in isolation for 6 weeks, but she survived. Born just 1080 grams, which went down to 990 grams (2 pound) and only 33 centimeters (13 inch) long she made it! She came home on December 15th 1988!


She is always in a good mood, laughing, helping out and happy. She is a wonderful sister to Michal, Sarai and Yael and a fantastic daughter. I am so proud of her! Happy 22th birthday Sharon!

This is the birthday card I made for Sharon a while ago.


It says on the front "spread your wings and fly"
and a proverb of Buddha inside


To celebrate Sharon's birthday with you,
how about a homemade cupcake? Commercial use ok.

van harte gefeliciteerd met jullie dochter.
Ik heb kippenvel gekregen bij het lezen van jou post Elsina. Wat een zorgen moeten jullie gehad hebben om jullie meisje. Maar wat is ze er goed uitgekomen zeg. Wat een doorzettertje. Leuk dat ze bitterballen en eierballen wilde voor haar verjaardag. Knap dat je dat zelf gemaakt hebt hoor. Ik ga het recept wel bewaren en wie weet ga ik ook eens creatief in de keuken worden;-)
Ik wens jullie allen heel veel liefde geluk en gezondheid toe.
Liefs Ester
