What should have been an amazing day with my Mother and my son, turned out to be one more thing to mark of my "to do list". I tell Zack on a daily basis that his attitude must stay strong, he must stay positive and yet when the going gets rough, I don't follow my own advise. I could blame it on lack of sleep, stress or sheer frustration, but if my attitude had been calmer, I would have made a joke about each situation and we all would have had a good laugh.
I can't take back today, but I can change my attitude in the future. As I get ready for bed I count today's blessings.
1) Mom was with us all day and through tomorrow
2) Zacks counts are good , his arm is getting better with the daily shots and he has been in good moods in
spite of us saying NO to many of his requests to run all over town.
3) DSS finally got everything they need to complete our application for insurance assistance for the July and
August. (after multiple trips to their office)
4) We were able to go the the mall to get Zack a pair of glasses. (after waiting 1 1/2 hrs they will be ready in
5) We made it to Hendersonville, Asheville and Home in spite of my "road rage" (Zack to me "MOM WE
ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!")
6) We get to go for next treatment on Tuesday (instead of Wednesday.. a nurse is willing to work half a day
on her day off to accommodate my work schedule) THE CLINIC ROCKS!!!! Thank you Dr. S, Julia,
Melanie, Karen and the nurse willing to come in on Tuesday (sorry don't know your name) for all your
7) Friends are working on a fundraiser to help offset the medical bills.(Life has a way of making us put away
our pride and accept help when offered)
