[FONT=Book Antiqua]Two years have passed since the nightmare of my life happened. I just don't know how I could ever thank you for all the support and love you showed me during such a difficult time. You may have been scared, but you never showed it in front of me or your kids. You have always been there as my rock and my support, but you went so many extra miles while I was sick. There just aren't enough words to express how I feel about you. You stayed home with me and waited on me hand and foot the first week I was home. You went and got me food to eat that was bland as my stomach was a mess for almost a month. You changed dressings and packed me full of gauze, often coming home during your work day as to let me sleep in the morning, only because you knew I was having the hardest time getting sleep at all. You cleaned, cooked, shopped, put up with me being in a hormone hell and you never complained. You took me for little rides in our Miata trying to get me to smile when I couldn't have painted one on my face. It got better, but it did take a little time. You were always patient though, never complaining. I don't think anyone could have been as lucky as me.

We have passed some milestones since that day....we celebrated 25 years of marriage in 2006. You gave me three great kids. We are about to celebrate two of those children leaving the nest and marrying themselves. We may see grandchildren in the next few years. We have many more places to go and see. It's a very exciting time for both of us! There just aren't words for how I feel about you.....I look forward to growing old with you. Thank you for being there for me. You really helped me though one of the most difficult times in my life...when no one else understood what I was feeling, you did.
I <3 you
