Jamie & Alvin
Jamie always had a big beautiful smile for everyone. She loved animals & babies. She had a collection of cows that filled her whole room. This is one of my favorite pictures of Jamie. It was shortly before she passed, lying on the couch with her cat, Alvin. She was buried in these pajamas. They were her favorite because they had cows on them. I put a little white tee shirt under the top and people commented on how pretty her "outfit" was. When I told them that they were her favorite pj's, they couldn't believe it.
Jamie's Diagnosis & Surgery
Stage 4 cancer of the oral tongue...
17 hour surgery to remove Jamie's tongue & lymph nodes
Plastic Surgeon did microsurgery to re-attach vessels & nerves & take a piece of skin from her abdomen to make a "fake tongue
Thank God they didn't have to remove her jawbone
When all was said & done...She was still the most beautiful Girl that God ever created !!!
