However, tonight, I am choosing to look at the bright side of this situation. Here it goes...
I am thankful for having the experience to recognize quickly when our children have ear infections.
I am thankful for a med center that is just minutes from our house which has always been filled with kind, knowledgeable staff.
I am thankful that despite being in pain, Nico slowing down looks like this:
I am thankful to have insurance that covers the needs of our family.
I am thankful for the medication that was prescribed not out of protocol but out of a meaningful conversation as to what has historically worked best.
It's been a long day of work and travel for both Chris and I. It would be easy to focus on the crappiness that is this situation. But tonight, I choose different.
And a glass of wine.
Perspective. For this, I am thankful.
