is back on Oak Forest Patch, sharing her experiences about her daughter's recovery following a devastating car accident in 2009. Check out the posts to see what she's been up to:
- Janet didn't cry when her mother died 12 years ago — at first. She explains how she eventually began to grieve and how the experience is related to a new website she established.
- You really learn what you believe when you begin to instruct your children. Janet realizes that when she's asked by another young lady with a traumatic brain injury about whether Juliana believes in God.
- Working through the issues you have in your life can save you a lot of bad steps around them later. It's safe to say most of us are dysfunctional, according to Janet, as she reflects on her relationship with her father.
- Some decisions are full of regret but none so painful as those you didn't get a choice to make. Janet shares a "moment of regret, a second of lamenting and a breath of remorse" about an extreme medical procedure.
- Janet finds out it might take many years to realize your vision of 'home' but it's never too late to try as she describes a special 15th anniversary gift from her husband.
- Juliana expects her family to mean what they say and she is willing to do the same in return. She is good at surprising her mother with a constant evolution -- and this one involves the family pet.
- Learning from her kids changes the way Janet sees herself. She knows she missed out on being one of the cool kids...or did she?
