week 6 (blessings)

This was also a "no brainer" week with the 52 blessings post.
With "heart day" coming up, I am THANKFUL for modern medicine.
This week Gary gave us a scare. He had some "routine surgery" on Tuesday to add some stints to his heart. Thursday a blood clot ended up in his bypass in his heart.
I am so so so thankful he listened to his (heart) and called for an ambulance. I am so thankful they gave him medicine to dissolve the clot. I am so thankful that they were able to successfully install another stint to block the clot.
Also, my friend's daughter is brought to mind. A two year old having open heart surgery. I can't imagine it, as a parent, or a patient. It is a miracle that the doctors were able to fix everything completely. Hooray for Primary Children's Hospital!
Happy Heart Day everyone! Be thankful that yours is healthy and strong. Be thankful for the love. Love you!
