Back story: One of Jay's very best friends from childhood (Scott) was badly wounded in Baghdad on April 15, 2007. Scott was riding in the turret of a humvee when a roadside bomb went off to the left of the vehicle. As a result of the blast, Scott suffered major head trauma. In fact, a piece of shrapnel is still embedded in the right side of his brain. If I remember correctly, Scott was in ICU for months... he told me he was unconscious for 3 days, and finally woke up when he first heard his mothers voice (so sweet!)... His prognosis was bad, but he made it! He is such and amazing person and friend, and we are so glad he is still with us.

Scott asked Jay to be his caddy during the golf tournament, which was a huge honor for him. That also meant we got to participate in the events sponsored by the Bush Center this past Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. It was exhausting, but so much fun, and definitely a once in a lifetime experience!!
