As I lay in bed tonight, I cannot help but smile. Today was not easy and honestly, I left the hospital in tears over the way my discharge was handled. It was after 8pm by the time we arrived home and to say that I was exhausted would be an understatement. But as I lay here surrounded by the dark of night, I am reminded of just how blessed I truly am.
I am blessed because…
I have the most amazing husband who stands by my side and sits through surgeries and holds my hand and fills my prescriptions and helps Jacob brush his teeth and makes sure I eat and drives me around and the million other things that this man does for me because he loves me.
There is a procedure available that allows me to deal with this fluid in the comfort of my home and before it becomes painful.
My in-laws adore Jacob and are more than happy to watch him – and he loves them just as much!
We came home to a sparkling clean house, courtesy of dear friends.
I have the ability for a nurse to come to my home and help teach Joe how to drain my lungs for as long as we need.
I could feel all of the prayers, positive thoughts and good vibes today. They swirled about me and my family, touched the hands of the surgeon and his staff and are helping to ease the pain from surgery. I have the most amazing support system that lifts me up and fills my heart.
So as I fall asleep tonight, it will be with a heart full of love from the incredible blessings that I am gifted with tonight & always.
