Do You Have Any Questions?

February 28, 2019 in Motherhood - No Comments

When we left the NICU after Callie was born, I remember the doctor asking me if we had any questions before we left. 
Questions? 
Yes. 
I had a bunch. I understood her medications and her breathing treatments. I understood our follow up appointments and home health nurse schedules. 
But what happens when she asks why this happened? 
What do I tell her when kids point to the big scar on her little chest? 
How do we deal with people looking at her leg? Those looks of relief on others faces that it isn’t their child? 
How do we juggle all the appointments? Therapy sessions, PT, orthopedic, cardiologist, kidney specialist? 
Will she be able to do all the things other kids do?
How do we pay for all of this?
How do I deal with this guilt taking up permanent residence in my chest?
Will it get easier to breathe?
Will it always be this frightening? 
What if I cant be brave for her? 
I felt James’s hand squeeze mine. I felt his strong presence next to me as he smiled reassuringly at me as he told the doctor……
“I think we’ll be ok.”

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
