day 2 post op


 i am certain a braver soul does not exist in this world than that of my daughter. i am deeply humbled by her incredible ability to face challenges that most of us will never even come close to encountering even once in our lives. she astounds me, i sit in awe of her strength, her grace, and i will never forget this week as she taught me how to endure hardship with dignity. such a privilege and an honor to call her my daughter. will be back here soon. rest assured, now that we are home from the hospital after 5 tough days, she is doing absolutely beautifully! i am not sure i could say the same with a 7 inch incision trailing down the center of my back :) but as you all have come to know, there is little if anything that keeps my girl down for long.

  7. This picture of E brings me such sweet memories. It was a picture similar to this that I received of my daughter that made me know at first glance that she was my daughter.

    I'm so relieved that you are home and that E is doing better. My heart and prayers are with you.
