Thankful Thursday

4:11 PM
Thankful to be home from the hospital, where we spent the morning.

The girl and I have been working through cough, congestion and fever this week. For a little asthmatic, that can become complicated. The albuterol makes her seem happy and energetic (read "jacked up") but her wheeze and skin color prove otherwise...

Grateful for the calm brothers as Mommy isn't so cool when scared, grateful for friendly, helpful medical staff, grateful for a husband to meet us in the ER and take home the bored and be their teacher, grateful for the medicine that helps her breath.

Charmed that she kept spelling her name for everyone who came in to assess her, charmed that she made them laugh with her descriptions of frogs stuck in her throat and how she needs her "smoke". Charmed at the reception she got from her brothers as we pulled into the driveway and they ran out to greet her home.

Home.

Want to close my eyes and have it be tomorrow.

God bless all those parents who are still at the hospital with their child. My heart aches for them.
God BLESS them!

My little William (who is 5) is reading blogs with me and saw your little girl and said, "Isn't she pretty". I said, "Yes, sweety she sure is."

Take care and I am "thankful" you are all home....together.

Poor her! Poor you! Uh boy, do I know this topic of simple breaths. I love her explaination frogs in her throat and having to have her smoke. I told my husband this tonight and he had a hearty chuckle, saying it was a wonderful way to describe the feeling. He has many smokes daily. Praying for you all! God bless
