It was a happy day when we got to take Miah’s feeding tube out! It’s like she was never even sick. She looks and acts healthy and happy again. Although I’m rejoicing a big part of me is still on high alert. Watching as the immune suppressant medication takes effect to calm her immune system and keep her body from attacking itself.
So far, so good!
The irony that my nerve-wracking worry for her health has finally subsided, and the fact that it’s almost thanksgiving isn’t lost on me. I have so many things to be grateful for. It’s so easy to complain about how much the holiday’s are commercialized, busy schedules, and social, political, and everyday problems…
This year, I just feel grateful to be able to focus on all the little things – important things – that make up my life. God, family, health, a place to call home, and enough food to eat. Thanksgiving is like a comfy chair tucked away in the corner of the holiday season where you can sit quietly with those you love most…and eat a 5 course meal. 🙂
