...I know it's been a while since I posted last... about a month but Reese had that surgery I mentioned a couple of months ago.
And boy was it a dozzie. She was completely down and out for two weeks and in a lot of pain. There were a couple of days right in the beginning, I wondered if she would ever forgive me for putting her through this. She was so angry and then so sad. It just about broke my heart. But through us loving her and holding her, she finally started to trust us again.
Now four weeks later, you would never know it happen. She's back. She's just amazing and God is go good. He really touched her through this whole recovery. It will be a while before we know if this surgery will help her with her speech, but we are trusting the Lord and just know she's going to be saying things she was never able to before.
During this season of giving... I cant help but stop and thank God , for the gift of Jesus and for the gift of my family... and my daughter Reese.
She is truly so special and I'm blessed to be her mother. She told me yesterday in between a doctor visit and speech therapy, " mom I really, really really, really loved you; you're my best friend and my buddy." She's told me many time she loves me but this was the first time she told me I was her best friend and buddy. It was just that little something I needed to know that this last four weeks are behind us. It was so sweet and so true.
Reese, I am your mother, best friend, and buddy forever and always. I love you Reese. Merry Christmas...
