A Heartfelt Thanks . . .

to the emergency room workers across the country, but most especially here in my little corner of the world. In nearly 23 years of parenting my husband and I have never had to utilize the services of any hospital emergency room for any of our children.

That changed last night.

Thanks to quick treatment leavened with humor and kindness, my nearly 18 year old daughter, who has suffered with asthma for the first time in her life this spring, was treated and sent home in far better shape than when she arrived.

Thank you from the depths of this mother's heart.

Dear Mary,
I have done emergency rooms and am glad your daughter is okay.
It can be so upsetting.

Oh my goodness Mary. This is all so crazy. She has never had this problem. I am so sorry. Clarice

Emergencies like that can feel a bit overwhelming, especially when our loved ones are involved, and asthma is frightening at times. It's such an awful feeling not being able to breathe. I hope both you and your daughter are feeling better and that your week ahead is a relaxed and happy one.
Take care Mary.

As frustrating as doctors' offices and insurance and the rest of the medical quagmire can be, a dependable emergency department with caring people who know the patient's family is also suffering is PRICELESS!

Dear Mary,
I have sending my blessings.
I thought life must have gottem crazy for you.
Glad all went well for your mom. My parents are both gone now. Each moment you get to share now will be a balm later.
