Well yesterday I got to bring Jamie home from the hospital. We spent the last week or 8 days hanging out there together following yet another one of her operations. She made a little bit of a habit of it when she started out the year 2008 with a surgery followed by three other surgery's and aprox. 30 plus days spent in the hospital that year. She must have had her fill because she took a little break up until now, but it must have been time for some more mother/daughter bonding because we got to go do it again this last week!
I should correct my self when I say "we" got to do it, because she did it all and did it amazingly! This was no "little" surgery, it turned out to be a major operation and Jamie takes it without complaining or whining. I marvel at the amount of challenges she faces daily and then to add this on top of it all I have to say that she is one of my heros! I feel lucky to be there by her side and hold her hand while she teaches me about overcoming challenges, patients, enduring to the end and adversity! Her life never has and probably never will be easy. I am often so quick to complain or get upset about the challenges that I have been given and she quietly goes about facing whatever comes may it be big surgery or a daily challenge, and for her there are plenty of those. I am so proud of her and all that she over comes. She is an amazing girl and I can learn so much from her! I love you so much Jamie and hope you know how much I look up to you and that you are truly one of my HEROS!!!
