…I found this pix of our family Christmas dinner 2010. here is my sweetest Emma. It had been 3 months since her spine surgery @ Shriners Hospital, Greenville, SC. this week my son,Eric, drove her there for her 1 year check. Dr. Pete, her surgeon , marveled at her progress. we all have ! Emma,age 13, continues to be our inspiration. she is bright, happy, talented,loving,caring, and has been through so much in her little life, we all are embarrassed to complain about our little aches and pains. two years prior to this extensive spine surgery she had both hips completely replaced. Words cannot express how much I respect & admire and love her.
