Showing Respect

So I said I had something.....special. Some of you won't get the full significance of it. But here it is!

This Carolina Girl knows no better way to pay her respects than this....

Thank you Duke Medical Center, Duke Children's Pediatric Surgery team, Duke Pediatric Gastroenterology, and all the fantabulous nurses that have taken SUCH great care of Riley Bear, for saving AND fixing him. It may have taken 16.5 months to do it, but whats a year and half compared to a lifetime of being "normal"?

(PS: Riley is doing ok. Obviously not 100%, probably not even 75%, but he's doing ok)

You are feeling like you going to hurl (from your Twitter feed) b/c you are wearing a Duke shirt!

I'm proud of you. It was hard for this Carolina girl to wear a Duke shirt, too. At least mine was green b/c I refused to Duke blue. :)

It's a wonderful picture of a wonderful family. I agree with Rachael in that I am sorry you had to go through this but we are honored to have met you.
