(1/2) Meet Nolan! This family has become family to us. They are some of Tads biggest supporters, and have become so dear to our hearts! Although we never got the chance to meet Nolan in person, we love Nolan so much and know that he is always watching over Tad. We will forever be #teamnolan . Nolan's mom and dad made a special trip up to meet Tad 🤗, and Ali always checks in on Tad and gives him so much love. We are beyond lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives. "On January 25 of this year or son Nolan passed away due to complications from the CHD Truncus Arteriosus - Type 2, at just 7 months old. During Nolan’s short life he had to endure many major medical procedures at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital; including 2 open heart surgeries, 2 open abdominal colon surgeries, 3 cardiac catheterization procedures, 3 PICC line insertions; along with being on approximately 10 major medications for heart failure, reflux, seizures, blood pressure, diuretics and blood clot inhibitors.
There were times we never knew if our precious Nolan would ever see the outside world outside a hospital room, but on *October 27 2017 he was taken outside to the front gardens of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital by his sister Ashlyn and dad Sean to a beautiful cool, sunny day to blooming flowers, bees buzzing and birds singing. 🙏🏽 and again on *November 5 his mom Ailian was able to take him outdoors for a lovely stroll in the gardens. 🙏🏽 ...."
