A little reflecting...

This morning while eating breakfast and in our usual rush to get kiddos ready and off to school, I realized what day it was and where we were on March 3 2009.  C, Z and I were waking up at The Children's Hospital in Denver and Z had just undergone brain surgery overnight to drain fluid that had built up on his brain.  This all started with a simple sinus infection that went haywire.  

I hope to never again, in my lifetime, see one of my kiddos fly off in a medical helicopter.  I hope to never have to sit in an operating waiting room while one of them undergoes brain surgery.  

~I am so thankful for all the doctors and nurses who were so amazingly wonderful during the 2 weeks we were in TCH.  
~I am thankful for my Mom and Dad and their love and care of the girls while we stayed in Denver with our sweet boy!  
~I am so thankful for friends and  family who stopped by or sent lots of love to help lift Z's spirits and for all their love and support.  
~I am thankful for these hard times that make us appreciate all the good times we have had and will continue to have for a long time.  
~I am thankful that I was home this morning, fussing with kiddos, making sure they ate all their breakfast and drank all their fresh-squeezed OJ (THANKS BABA!!) and hurrying them out the door to catch the bus in time.  I wouldn't want it any other way!  
Daddy and I love you kiddos more than you will ever know!
