I was born with a heart defect called tetralogy of fallout. I have had numerous heart surgeries to repair my heart. My last surgery was in 2010 I had a pulmonary valve replacement Shortly after my surgery my US NAVY Seabee deployed on what was our longest deployment ever a 10 month deployment. I was still heeling and sent him off. During that de ployment, He opened my eyes to how strong of a person I really am, taught me I could stand on my own, taught me to listen to my broken heart even though it is now mended, and has taught me to be brave and strong, even though I think I taught him the new meaning of being brave and strong after he saw me fight for my life. We were only married 8 months the time of my surgery, He tells me everyday how much I inspire him, he has no clue how much he inspires me and keeps me going. I am his best friend his supporter and most of all, I will stand next to him always when he deploys no matter the circumstances.
