Fabulous Freaking Friday

It has been quite a week. I am now going to list the things I am very thankful for, in no particular order:

Cooper is down to using the nebulizer on an "as needed" basis.
Cooper went to school this morning!
My parents.
The Bob.
My job.
The people I work with.
My friends.
Meena, the mom in my neighborhood who knows about nebulizers, pneumonia and breathing problems in kids.
That at 5pm last night it was still light out.
These two pictures, taken by my father in warmer weather. A reminder that there are flowers in our future.
The 5 people who read this blog!

Thanks to those who have expressed their concern and care about us. We are feeling a bit beaten up, but in the scheme of things, we are OK.

There will be flowers again? I'm so glad you reminded me.

I'm thankful for you every time I'm thankful I have a job!

Hi - you don't know me but I just clicked over to your blog from Whiskey in my sippy cup.

I want you to know that you are not alone, and I'm really glad I'm not either.

I'm also sitting with my 2 year old little boy with a nebulizer. He doesn't have pneumonia right now, thank god, but he's had RSV and pnueumonia and bronchitis, and we're trying to keep him out of the hospital this winter. He was born at home but unfortunately has been hospitalized for RSV twice.

Anyway, mine (his) has a dragon mask and we're watching Dumbo :-)

Keep up the good work. It's hard as hell.

Laura - I am there for you! Dale - thanks for the note. This is a first for us and I totally want the dragon mask!
