Today marks a year since Christian was admitted into the hospital for dehydration following his adenoidectomy and tube surgery and then a bout of strep. It was a very stressful time. He wouldn't eat or drink and was very listless. It isn't often one of my boys refuses food!!!
Ross was hospitalized a few years ago following a severe asthma attack. He even arrived at the hospital via ambulance from the doctor's office. I had been giving him breathing treatments and puffs of his inhaler but those weren't making his breathing any easier. That was a very scary time.
Every time one of my children has been sick or physically hurt, I couldn't help but think of countless families who live with a terminally ill child. I can't imagine the emotional, physical, and financial toll it takes on parents and siblings. I am so thankful that my boys are healthy. Even though the hospital stays were painful to go through, I praise God for them because it helps me realize how good we have it. It made me count my blessings!
