Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for the ability to visit a doctor whenever we need one. Benjamin has had a terrible cough for a couple of days, and he started running a fever. We were able to see a doctor, get a diagnosis and prescriptions in about an hour and a half. I am thankful Ben does not have the flu or pneumonia. I am also thankful that the cough has not exacerbated his asthma.

I am thankful that we all love each other so much that we can’t help sharing our illnesses. How do you spell ca-cough-ony? I can hear one in my living room.

I am thankful for pharmacies.

I am thankful for my husband’s career and employer which make health care less of a worry.

I am thankful for chicken and rice that can be made into a yummy soup. I am thankful for good, old-fashioned saltine crackers.

I am thankful for heavy blankets and quilts and pillows. And slippers, soft Kleenex, cough drops, Vick’s vapo-rub, and hot tea.

I am thankful Karl decided to stay home today. I am thankful he did all of the grocery shopping.

I’m thankful Noah put away the laundry for me.

I am thankful that I get to take care of my people when they’re sick. I am thankful that they take good care of me when I’ve caught whatever they had.

  1. We’ve been to the Dr too. Only it took us 3 hours from appointment time to back in the house with the Rx. We did hit the library really quickly in between Dr and pharmacy, but still waited A WHILE for the Rx.
