Bennett's Scar of Bravery

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Bennett will always have a scar down his abdomen from the middle of his chest to his belly button.  It will probably fade over time but it will always be there.

 
The bottom part of the scar is from his first surgery.  The top part (the reddish part) is from his last surgery (the "Humpty Dumpty" one).

 
We have decided to call this scar, Bennett's Scar of Bravery.  We hope that we can use it to tell Bennett the story of his early and successful fight against CF.  It is never something to be ashamed of.  Instead, it is something to be very proud of (with humbleness, of course).  Bennett will have many many doctors appointments, procedures and hospitalizations over the course of his lifetime in his battle against Cystic Fibrosis.  We hope that we will be able to reassure him that he is a brave boy by reminding him that he was given a scar of bravery.
