Thankful 1.0

Today I will not think about how Rambo was worse today than yesterday.

I will not think about how his fever and heart rate are up.

Or how his pnemonia is worse.

Or how we are away from 3 of our kids yet again.

I will not think about how we will miss out on our anniversary weekend.



I will be thankful for....

Sushi and Sapporo.

A harbor view (even in a city I don't care for tremendously.)


(All of which were from our evening of choosing to make the best of our situation and enjoy our anniversary even if it's not what we had planned.)

Finding my three year anniversary gift that I lost several months ago!
In the pocket of a sweatshirt! Woot!

Humor from the PICU staff.

Raspberry Cinnamon Rolls. RASPBERRY, people!! Be jealous.

And to list a few that I don't have pictures of....

Rambo being slightly less agitated tonight before bed.

God continuing to give me the urgency to get Theodore more care.

The forsight to fly him out.

A husband who put up with my exhaustion and unrelenting concern. And who supported me to make sure I was satisfied.

Parents who drop what they're doing to come to help:
My mom coming last minute to help me rush to the doctor only to turn around and be sent home.
My mother in law coming last minute to help me decide what to do.

*For the few who may care: Today is not actually our anniversay, it's the 31st. Our plans were for next weekend, but we don't know where we'll be. And funds are now being spent here.
9 years! I seriously deserve a trophy. :)

I'm walking in faith today. Hopefully I'll do the same tomorrow.
