Wonderful news for our whole family this weekend – my son now has a son of his own! A beautiful healthy baby boy, Zachary David Dunn, was born at 6:46 p.m. on March 27, 2021, weighing 8 pounds 8 ounces – a second grandchild for me (his Baba), a fourth for Grandma MaryAnn, a sweet baby cousin for Everly Rose, and the long-awaited precious first baby for ecstatically happy parents Paula and Ben, who are exhausted but over the moon! Mum and babe both doing well. I can’t visit them in person or hold my little grandson because of COVID-19 precautions, but I can have a “window visit” from the hospital parking lot today! . .
Too excited and distracted to write anything more today, other than “Grandbabies are the best therapy for heart patients!” Life is good. . .♥
Q: Are you a grandparent too? What do you love most about this role?
NOTE FROM CAROLYN: On the dedication page of my book, “A Woman’s Guide to Living with Heart Disease” (Johns Hopkins University Press), I wrote to my granddaughter:
“To my darling grandbaby, Everly Rose: On the day you were born, one of my Heart Sisters blog readers predicted, ‘This precious little child will do more good for your heart than anything your cardiologist could ever prescribe for you.’ She was right!”
