Thankful Thursday

It's been too long since I posted a Thankful Thursday and I have so much to be thankful for. I cannot say enough how thankful I am for Dr. Chamberlain and all the nurses and staff at the hospital. Both hospitals. I am thankful for the incredible people in my ward that have come to my aide and even brought me Diet Coke and cookies to help me out of my slump. I am so thankful family and for their unconditional love and support. Always. No matter what.

Today I was reading my friends blog about her son and the trails they are going through. Her son has had on going problems for about 3 years. They've done millions of test and haven't come to a conclusion of why his health is so terribly bad. Well, after giving up on all Utah Dr.'s they heard of a specialist in Cincinnati that works with HLH. HLH is a life-threatening immunodeficiency. It is white blood cells that basically form in your bone marrow and travel through you body to fight off diseases and stops in one place, healthy tissue, and then starts to kills it. He's had numerous liver and kidney problems. They have had to fight it off with Chemo and do a Bone Marrow transplant. The poor boy is Josh's age. He just turned 12 two weeks ago. His story is amazing and though it is awful that he has to go through this huge trail, reading his blog has made me very thankful that all my kids had was meningitis.

Our prayers go out to him and his family as he fights the long road back to recovery. If you want to read about it you can go to
