05/10/2009: Elena on our first Mothers Day together. I know that if I didn't have Cushing's, I wouldn't have Elena. She is the most incredible thing I have done in my life.
Cushing's, I have to come to terms and accept you! Life sure takes you on a windy road!
06/11/2009: My last few moments at the hotel with my sweet Elena before we head to the hospital for my pituitary brain surgery.[Not in photo: me taking Elena around the corner and crying in fear of leaving her and never coming back].
