Thankful Thursdays #3 (on Saturday)


Yes, I realize it's Saturday.  And I realize that I haven't managed to post "Thankful Thursdays" on an actual Thursday, or at least I don't think I have...  I'm too busy and too far behind to go back and check...

But here is this week's Thank You:

I'm thankful that for the most part, I'm in good health, even if I did spend three hours in the emergency room last night.  It wasn't anything serious, I don't have any debillitating disease or illness, I'm not sporting any scars or lesions that might scare young children...  I just have a swollen elbow that won't go away.  I'm thankful that it's one more thing I have in common with my Daddy - he had bursitis in his shoulder.  I apparently have it in my elbow.  Considering the number of other reasons I could have these symptoms - yup, darned lucky I'm as healthy as I am...

I'm thankful for my husband.  Yes, a repeat thanks, and that's probably cheating, but he sat with me in the ER for three hours with nary a complaint and he only almost fell asleep once in the examining room when they left us sitting there for an hour.  He jumped right on the silly bandwagon with me and took photos of me in the hospital bed, laughing and pointing to my bum elbow, so we could send them to my sisters, my sister-in-law and my friend.  Then he counted down the seconds to the return phone calls!  And we bet on how long exactly we'd be sitting there before they actually came in to examine me.  And he won, but literally 2 seconds after he won, they knocked on the door and came in - the look on his face was priceless!  We went a bit hysterical and had to calm down for the ER doctor.  The ER doctor who was a female Dougie Howser...  I wouldn't even like to guess how young she was...

I'm thankful, too, for my friend G.  She's got a lot on her plate right now, with her mom sick in the hospital, suffering from a chronic heart condition that puts a lot of strain on G and her hubby.  But she was still worried enough to call me the minute she saw my hospital photo and find out what was wrong and if I needed anything...  We've been friends for just a few years now, but I know we'll be friends forever.

Glad things went as well as they did. Early retirement sounds like a plan to me. You could always do some kind of work from home. Love to you both. Anita
