The Little Things

I recently spent three days in the hospital with Emily while she recovered from a very severe case of pneumonia. She had been sick for 10 days before we finally figured out what was going on. I know we have all gained an extra measure of grattitude for the things in life that seem so little but are really huge when it comes down to it. Little things like:
  • Tylenol and Ibuprofen to help a raging fever
  • a doctor who really knows what she's doing
  • the ability to breathe without difficulty
  • the ability to move around on your own
  • the comfort of the Holy Ghost
  • the power of a priesthood blessing to soothe and comfort a restless child
  • all of the modern medical conveniences and knowledge that can allow a child to recover from something that, 100 years ago, probably would have taken her life
  • antibiotics
  • x-rays
  • FAMILY!!!
I could probably make a list a mile long, but don't have the time or space. I am always awed at the love and concern shown to us by family, friends, doctors, and most especially Heavenly Father. I know we wouldn't have made it through any of this without each one of them. A gigantic THANK YOU and WE LOVE YOU to each of you!
