I am so grateful to all my friends and family who have tugged, pulled, pushed and prayed for me while I was at the Cleveland Clinic. 7 weeks I was away from my family, I missed my grandchildren so much.....my children too, but mostly Eric, Recker and Ezra---they have my heart. There was no way Eric could be away from work for that long, and honestly I had no idea I would be there for so long, it took 2 weeks to get all the testing done, then another 2 weeks for all the surgeons to get there schedules to coordinate, by the time all this was done I had a week left and made the decision to stay, I think I was so afraid of going home and not coming back. Eric was able to be there for my surgery, I am so grateful to US Airways for offering to pay for his round trip, Eric would of never missed my surgery, he's been there for everyone of them and has been such a blessing in my life. I have always said I work for the best company ever, US Airways. My supervisor and manager are incredible people, with integrity and support for all who work for them. Thank you US Airways.
When I left for Cleveland Clinic I had a pic line in my arm and could not change the dressings on it nor was I able to do my own transfusions, that were needed to be done every 12 hours. For this reason I was blessed with Diana Lents to come with me, she gently took care of those things for me and having a nursing background was able to ask all the questions I didn't know to ask. Her family is from Ohio and they were so gracious to allow me a stranger to stay in their home to save on hotel bills.

Another angel who came to visit me was PK's mother, she is such a lovely woman and I was blessed to spend some time with her. I loved talking with her and could see that she has a sincere heart,
no wonder her son is my favorite doctor ever.

|Nurse Diana Lents--can't thank her enough.|
|best welcome home ever I love my family|
Eric I saved for last, he has a sweetheart, not too many people get to see him the way I do. What a blessing it is to be married to someone who you never want to be without.
|Dr. Haberkamp--so happy all the time|
