I just needed to tell you again how much I admire you. I wish we were closer in miles, but you are in my heart. I will pray for you and your family. I am thrilled to hear that your parents are all going to be with you. Wishing you strength and a very speedy recovery. Remember that you have a beautiful guardian angel who will be watching over you. Waiting for the surgery will be the hardest part. Love you so so much. xoxo, Brittany
I remember so clearly the first time you went through this. You we scared but brave. I couldn't believe that you had to face something so huge and be so young. You have endured the hardest events in your life and I admire your strength. You will make it through this too. I wish I could be there or do something to make it easier for you. I think about you everyday and I read all the wonderful things your family writes. You have great support and you deserve it. You are a sweetheart. I am proud to be friends with such a wonderful strong woman. I love you!! -Chelsey
Jamie, you are as ready as you can be for this surgery all we need is to get it done....you have wonderful friends there in texas that have helped you and I am so appreciative of them. All of your friends here in Utah are aware of what is happening to you and you are in their thoughts and prayers also, With all of us praying and caring for you everything will turn out just as it should and soon this will be a memory in all our lives, and something we will give recognition to each year. I am so grateful for medical procedures that help us maintain our lives and go on, I am truly grateful for your surgeon who is going to fix what is wrong and make you better. I am grateful for you a special daughter, you give my life such joy. This is a month of thanks we as a family have so much to be grateful for, and our blessings will be fulfilled when your surgery is over and you are well. Stay strong the next few days, keep busy, we will be there soon and then it will be over know that I love you with all my heart
I want you to know how much I love you and yes you will be in my thoughts and prayers every day as you go through this process again. I can remember sitting in the waiting room at the hospital when you had your first surgery and then coming back to sit in your room just to make sure you were going to be okay. How I wish that i could be there for you this time but please know I will be thinking of you every minute. I know that I will be updated every minute. I love you!
Nope that one wasn't from me. But my guess is it's gotta be someone close to you, maybe your dad or Mac. Just cause they called you "babe". It's a pretty familiar term, I know MIke calls me babe all the time. That would be my guess. Any way, Jamie just want you to know that I am thinking of you everyday and praying for you to have courage, and faith. We all love you and know that everything is going to work out great. Your a strong woman and that alone is one of the keys. Aunt Lisa
Jamie, I know I talked with you a little earlier, but I just wanted to let you know again how much you are loved and you will be in our thoughts and prayers every day and every night. I'm so glad that you have a great surgeon. I know they have some of the best in Texas, especially in the Houston area. I'm so glad that your mom and dad will be able to come down and be there with you, at least then you really won't have to worry about anything else except recovery. It was really awesome to see you in Utah, my hope is to see you IN UTAH again in about 6 months. We need to make a deal. You might be there before me, but hopefully I won't be far behind. Well just know how much I love you and your sweet family. You are very blessed. Love you forever ! Aunt Lisa
Jamie, I am so glad that we are at this point of the process making the decision is the hard part and now just getting through it all is next. I know that you will be so much better after this is done and you will be glad that it is behind you and you can go on and live a full and complete life. I am so lucky to be your mom, your an awesome daughter so strong and caring, we will be there all the way with you, and I do think it is appropriate to celebrate your new heart valve with a yearly party just like we did the pig valve, celebrations come in all sizes and reasons and this one will be the best ever I love you with all my heart
So I hear there will be a contest to name the next party? I am glad our family has sense of humor enough we think of naming parties. But fun and games aside, I am glad you have a good doctor you have confidence in. It will make it easier for those of us so far away to get through your surgery as worry free as possible. Keep me posted on your recovery timeline. I am 100% willing to come hang out and help. Rob and kids are supportive of me coming as well. Big Kiss, Tight hug.
Thanks for the update Jamie. I am so glad the surgeon eased your mind and that you have confidence in his ability to make you better. That's half the battle right there!!! Please know that we are praying for you, your family and the surgeon. I'm still just a phone call away if you need anything (((BIG HUG)))
We love you Jamie! You are an amazing woman! I believe that you will make the best decision for you. I wish we could be there with you, but just know that our hearts are there. You will be in our prayers through the whole process! Good luck sister!
Annie and Family
Jamie...I just had my aortic valve replaced 2 weeks ago. I still remember how nervous and stressed I was leading up to the surgery. Just know you will get thru it just fine and on the road to recovery. I feel great now, no pain and getting better every day. It's tough, I know, just be strong and everything will be fine.
Hey Jaime Lou, You're one of the strongest women I know, you have been through so many things in your young life, don't be afraid of this surgery because you are strong and healthy and you need to do this so you can go forward with lost of strength and energy. Your children and Mac need you to be strong for them. You will come out feeling better than ever and be able to do whatever you need to . We will be there for you as long as we need us to be. Love you Dad
Jamie, please know that we are thinking of you & praying for you & your family. Always remember how strong you are & you have many people in your life who love & support you. Please let me know if you need anything.
