I know I whinge and moan about the medical care up here but I am really very thankful…
I am thankful that we have a good, kind, paed, who humours us. Ok, he is not often available but today he called first thing and we are going to see him tomorrow. I know it’s only for reassurance and I’m sure he knows it too but he is seeing us just the same.
I am thankful that our ENT doctor really is the best around here and that he will look after Ivy for her adenoids and possibly tonsils now.
I am thankful that I have found a decent GP (I just hope he stays up here).
I am thankful that I do know the system and that I do know how long I can stay at home with sick babies and that the doctors will support me in this (at least in theory).
I know I whinge and moan about my husband but I am very thankful that he is in my life and he is so good to me. I love him very much. He is my world.
I love my children (all seven of the earth angels) and I love having them in my life. They are amazing wonderful people, who teach me new things everyday.
Quietly, I am thankful for having Aubrey and William and the three other babies I never got to meet. They have taught me much about who I am.
I love my Mum and I am thankful that we have such a good relationship.
I am thankful for all the friends who have come into my life. Each and every one of them is special.
I really do love my home. I love that I can look out the window from my bedroom and see the mountains.
Tonight I am very thankful that Ivy’s temp is down and she is sleeping peacefully and that Noah is well too. I am thankful that, while the babies are often sick, that it is nothing really serious or life threatening.
