If she wants to be independent, let her be independent.
Send her a card, say a prayer and say thank you for the fact that you aren't the one who has to schlep her around to all her appointments etc.
Don't worry...when she needs you she'll call you. Those "independent" types usually do.
Prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.
Stop telling your God how big the storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is.
It's time to put on your big girl panties and deal with it!
Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.
There's no pill that cures stupid.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Everyone has great input. I just wanted to mention..I had some issues myself with some cancerous tumors and I didn't tell anyone except my husband. (though he let the cat out of the bag later) My parents, especially my mother, are the type that my medical problems would have been about SHE FELT, not about how I felt. I didn't talk about it to everyone else, because I was scared to death and couldn't take the endless discussion and advice that it would generate.

When I was going through a rough time my aunt sent me a grocery store gift card in the mail. No card, no signature just the card. I knew deep down that she had sent it. When she had been through a rough patch years before that is what my mother did for her. No one said anything to the other, so no thanks was necessary. Just a bit of help. Not saying this is what needs done but I have done it a few times in the past for people I know needed to know someone was there for them but I didn't want to add stress.
