This may sound corny, but my wife is by far the bravest person I have ever met. She endured an incredible operation, an emotional trauma, severe pain, the hardship that comes from every move and movement and a constant state of drowsiness.

What does she do? Smiles, laughs, asks each person who enters our room if they are having a good day, speaks positively about everything and everybody...and has not yet complained or felt sorry for herself. Her focus has been that this is the best thing in the world and she can't wait to start her new life.

She continues to touch me in ways I would have never imagined.

As I sit here in the hospital room watching her sleep, I can only reaffirm to myself how fortunate I am.


  1. She's the most amazing person I have ever met. And absolutely the bravest. We love you guys!

  2. Cindy, Your letter brings tears of joy and love to my eyes and I'm sure to many others. Thats the miracle in all this. We thank you, you thank us, its what its all about. God gives us strength to endure some of the hardest things that life can deal us and when were feeling down some of the littlest or in your case some of the most trying of all times gives us faith in others. I am proud to be your brother will always reflect your faith, hope and love in all that I do. Its 4:30PM Sunday the 24th and want to be the first to say Happy Birthday (yes I know its tomorrow) thats how much I love you.
