Gator Mom….

This is so funny and fits quite well. First, it is quite possible that there is a gator in just about any body of fresh water in Florida and they have even been known to take a dip in swimming pools. Nicole’s current PH specialist is at Shands Hospital in Gainesville which is at the University of Florida. The college has an awesome football and basketball team and their mascot is a gator. I have been a University of Florida Gator fan for years and years. I have gator anything I can find (shirts, blankets, sweatshirts, hats etc.). I also get teased about my passion for the Florida Gators.

I always thought that Nicole would go to the University of Florida. Ever since she was probably six years old or so she wanted to be a veterinarian and they have an awesome veterinary medicine school. She wanted to do this until she was about 14 years old when she decided she wanted to do something in the art field.

It is such a compliment and really very fitting that you guys would call me this.

My name is Jane and I care for my 19 year old daughter, Nicole, who has several congenital heart defects, Eisenmenger's syndrome and pulmonary hypertension which is a rare, life-threatening, incurable and progressive lung disease that causes blood pressure within the pulmonary arteries to become higher than normal. She also has several other health issues that are not as severe.I have two blogs one is "A Day in the Life" which chronicles Nicole's diagnosis and our everyday life. My other blog is "Let's Get Organized" which chronicles my struggle to get the clutter out of my house and get organized.

    It’s possible my partner and I were at Shands when you and Nicole were there — we saw a specialist there back in December. (The main person we see is in Tampa.) Go Gator Mom!

    You know another correlation is that the colors for Caregiving.com are blue and orange which are the team colors for the Florida Gators.

    Hi G-J:

    My true favorite colors are yellow (because it is bright and sunny) and purple/perwinkle (the color for PH) but I love blue and orange because they are the team colors.
