My Little Angel...

Yesterday my beautiful son turned four.  It feels like only yesterday the nurse put him in my arms and said "He's a healthy, beautiful baby boy!"  I can't believe how fast he's grown up.  He is so smart and loving and he makes me realize every single day that everything WILL be okay.  I got into my car accident when he was just a year and a half and haven't been able to walk since.  He's really only known mommy with a bad leg in a wheelchair and he still wakes up with a smile every morning.  I am so proud to be his mother.  I love him with every ounce of my being.  

I will be having surgery August 17th...a below the knee amputation.  The doctor's have done everything they could to try and save my leg and I have fought for almost 3 years now.  I don't regret it at all.  I know I fought the good fight.  But, I have to move on with my life and do what I can so I can be there for my baby.  I'm scared, nervous, terrified but also, I believe I am at peace with my decision because I know I will be able to take my son to the park and I will be able to put him on the bus for his first day of Kindergarten.  So far, my mother has been helping.  She truly has been a Godsend.  I don't know where either of us would be without her.  

My angel's father is in the Army.  He comes home on leave in 16 days and we are both so excited :)  I can't wait to see him and I know my little man can't either.  I love that man so much.  He gave me my son and he's given me so much more.  At least I will be able to spend 2 weeks with my family before I have to have this surgery.   

I thank God everyday for blessing me with such a gorgeous child and I hope all you other mother's out there do as well.  Children truly are blessings from God.  I am so thankful for mine
