thankful

There are so many things to be thankful for in our lives.  Yet today, I can’t really seem to fully grasp them because my dad is in the hospital and will be for the next few days. 

Just to catch you up:  over the past 2 months, my dad has been sick with who-knows-what.  And he has lost a lot of weight and not being able to keep it up even though he would consume large amounts of food.  And the downside is that through all this  time, the doctors couldn’t seem to find out what was causing it all.  So now you are up till yesterday. 

Yesterday consisted of a ct scan for my dad.  They found an infection in his kidneys and they asked to admit him immediately.  Today, he had a procedure done and they found a lot of that infection and want to keep him in for a few more days.  This is a crappy time, because of the holiday, but we are both very thankful because we finally know what it is that has been causing his pain. 

Food for thought: you can always find things to be thankful for in every situation.  I am thankful that it is not something worse, because there could always be something worse.  And I praise God that they found it before he could have lost a kidney or something worse. 

What are you thankful for?
