Thankful for. . .
I'm on the fence some days about doctors and the whole health care system. But I am thankful for the marvels of modern medicine. Both my father and my father-in-law are cancer survivors. My daughter was a preemie. We've had our fair share of experiences with doctors and hospitals just within the past 3 years. When I think about things that have transpired in the past - 15, 20 years ago - I'm amazed at the advances in medicine. Some of what we've been through these last couple of years probably would not have had such good outcomes 15, 20 years ago. Watching the tiniest of tiny babies in the NICU for a week while my daughter was there, I felt truly blessed and thankful for the doctors, nurses and technology available these days.
