Happy Birthday Jeffrey Andrew

Today is the day that Jeffrey Andrew was born, I remember the day like it was just yesterday, I remember his dad looked like the proverbial Japanese tourist. He had about 4 cameras, I nixed the video camera, no way was I going to have my C-Section on video.
Dear Jeffrey,
We were so happy to be having you son, happy and a little nervous. You were born a year after Michael and it was a little scary, back in those days they took babies two weeks earlier than the actual due date. You were born with water on your lungs and had to be put in the baby intensive care unit for 6 days while your lungs dried out.
During that time a doctor told me you would never be normal, never run, never play sports, have asthma and never breath like a normal child. God laughed at him, not only did you run, you played, soccer, baseball and one year of football.
You have grown up to be a man any mother would be proud of, you are funny, smart, handsome and loyal, I am so proud of the person you have become. You are such a good father to your child, patient, loving and handling situations with a sense of humor.
Happy Birthday son I love you so much,
Mom
