The Princess and The Prosthetic

One Foot In Front of the Other

October 23, 2020 in Warrior Princess - No Comments

Little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice.

Warriors are made of grit and grace.

Carbon fiber and steel.


We had the final X-Rays done on both of Callie’s legs last week and the surgeon recommended that we do the removal of the hardware on her right leg in December and “wait and see” for her left leg.

I’ll be honest.  It wasn’t the news we wanted to hear.

We wanted to be able to do both removals at the same time.

One trip to Dallas.

One Covid test and pre-op appointment.

One surgery.

One recovery.

But like normal, our best laid plans……have been derailed.  Hello, 2020.  Can I get an amen?

So we’re gearing up for two surgeries.

And like we have done for most of this journey…..we will figure it out.

With flexibility.





And a little bit of grit sprinkled on top.


Hi everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Jaime! Wife to my better half, James, who is my moon and all of my stars. We are parents to our little warrior princess, Callie Grace.

About Me


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
