Of course this time of year is all about being thankful. Of course we have a lot to be thankful for. With the whirlwind that was the last few weeks, I started thinking about all of the things I knew I was thankful for and all of the new things that have come to light. We are blessed in so many ways, with so many gifts of family, friendship, materials and so much more. We can’t complain at all.
Chelle has asked more than once about baby boy’s Downs as being some sort of “evening out” of our fortune. I can’t say it hasn’t crossed my mind, but I also can see how it could just be another of our many gifts. After our visit the other night with our new friends, I am 100% convinced it’s the latter.
On a sour note, I’m not sure what I ate or who I came across in the last couple days, but yesterday after lunch, I started feeling really awful and I’ve spent the last 24 hours in agony. It seems an awful lot like food poisoning, but could be just a 24 hour bug. I am finally feeling a little better, but it caused me to miss Thanksgiving celebrations which were scheduled to be with my mom’s family out at the nursing home where my grandpa lives. I was looking forward to seeing everyone who was going to be there and we had, through one of my aunts, informed them all about baby boy’s DS and they are all so supportive, it would have been great to see them all.
We’ll catch up with everyone soon, I’m sure. For now, I’m thankful for them and all of the other great people in our lives who will certainly play a part in baby boy’s future.
