Thankful Monday

This is how I found Ella last night when I checked on her right
before I went to bed. Of course I had to go back downstairs
and get my camera!!!
So yesterday, Stephanie a blog friend, did a post called Thankful Sunday and I liked it. Well I didn't quite get to it yesterday so I am going to do Thankful Monday instead.

  • I am thankful for every time Ella's blood tests come back with no leukemia cells!

  • I am thankful that when my 10 year old's friend called and told her to check out some video on You Tube, I overheard her tell her friend "I am not allowed to go on You Tube"!

  • I am thankful that I have a wonderful, easy going husband who gave up his Labor Day weekend to work overtime so we could get some much needed extra money!

  • I am thankful that our weather has finally cooled down and I can turn my air conditioner OFF for the first time in weeks!

  • I am thankful that Baby Max is recovering so well from his heart surgery!

  • I am thankful for all the plants my mom and sister had planted in my front yard while we were on vacation AND that I haven't killed that many of them.....yet!!

  • I am thankful that even with all the political crap that is going on in the U.S., that I get to live here!

  • I am thankful for the amazing friends I have made all because Ella was born with Down syndrome!!

Hi friend. Paul did get his heart. I want to post about it so bad but they haven't said anything yet so Im waiting. Also I left before he was out of surgery so I don't know how it went. I'm sure it went great but you never know and I would hate to post he got his heart and something didn't work out. I had taken a blankie up that I was going to give him for Eden. I had teased him that I would give him a big boy blankie. I had to just take it to PICU and leave it at the front desk because he was in surgery still. It was going to take a good 8 hours.

Love those cute little faces! So sweet that Max made your thankful list, too. {Max's room was across from Paul Cardall's room up at PCMC - he & his family came over to meet us last night, but we were gone to dinner - I am so bummed. When we came back, his entire family was there. I got a wink from our nurse when I asked about his heart. I had to email Lacey so she could confirm it when she brought Jax up today since she has more connections than we do! Then I snuck into the PICU to give thank you cookies to our PICU nurses and scanned the room list to make sure he was on there - I have been crying tears of joy all day!}
