I want to thank everyone that has known about my daughter's surgery and sent well wishes and said prayers....

A procedure that we were told would be easy has been nerve wrecking and emotional for me and her....We had an episode where I thought I was going to have to call 911 or my daughter was going to bleed to death in front of me....It was soooo scary and happened  so fast....I've never seen so much blood come so fast other than in a movie or tv....I think the memory will never leave me...I grabbed towels and had her lay in the hallway where she was...She was screaming and i was trying to remain calm or I would fall apart....My 4 yr old was there also and at the time I wasn't in the frame of mind to pay attention to how he was handling the situation....After Tim came in and a call to the doctor I went to the laundry room, called my mama (who lives 3 hrs away), broke down, and cried like a baby....I wasn't able to be upset while tending to her and then I fell apart emotionally....

So, I've kept a close eye on her....And she has to have this procedure again in a few weeks....This mother's heart hurts for her child tonight......

I just gave her a pain pill and will keep a close eye while she sleeps late into the night again tonight...So, I'm heading over to work on a final order to get out to try to fill my mind of other things....I've spent the evening getting my last orders ready for shipping tomorrow and Monday... Then I will get started on Christmas things as family things permit....


Please say a prayer for Taylor's healing....She has endured so much with this leg since she was born....It's so much to go into this late in the evening....Just  include her in your prayers and especially since she has to have it done again in a few weeks....She was very sad tonight with the knowledge that it has to be done again...


Thank you all sweet friends!!~~hugs, Jen

Being a mother is the most heartbreaking and nerve wracking thing sometimes. I am so glad you had your own Mother to rely on in your time of need. It's hard to watch your child in pain. We all wish we could just take it away if we could. You are so strong for her. Just what she needs. You did a good job for her. -Steph-

Jen, I went back and read about the rest of the evening. SCARY! I hope she's in less pain today. Hopefully the next surgery will be easier. At least she will know what to expect.
Talk soon, Judy

It's hard to be strong for our kids when we really don't want to be. I can't even imagine what that must have been like. So sorry you are going through this. Prayers are with you!
