Thankfulness

I couldn't be more thankful right now! My baby Cam is in the hospital, but my heart is bursting with thankfulness! Thankful that we aren't one of those families living in a Ronald McDonald house, seeing our baby attached to IV lines for months on end and being poked on and woken up around the clock. I'm so thankful that in a few days, she'll be rehydrated, and we'll be back home to life as normal (well, after our Christmas stint at the Grandmas' and Grandpa's!)
It gives me a small glimpse into how hard life must be for families with truly sick children. I am blessed!
She's sleeping peacefully now, after many hours of tortured crying -- not because she was in pain but because she was overtired and mad that she couldn't get down and do what she wanted -- and mad at the cast on her arm over her IV catheter that prevented her from playing with some of the toys -- and mad at the nurses who seem to have an internal beeper that said, "Go wake that baby that just fell asleep 2 minutes ago!" :o)
Thank you to our friends' prayers, our family's dependability, and especially for Sharon making a magazine and chocolate pit stop for me. :o) For all of these things, I am thankful!
