A Happy Thanksgiving

Mike here....

This Thanksgiving brings intensely into focus, that which I am thankful for.

Lisa, For helping us realize that every day is a gift, which is why it's called the present.

Family, Unfailing and always eager to step up

Neighbors that define the very essence of the word

Friends that blur the lines between friends and family

School Teachers that go way beyond teaching


Prayer Groups

"Perfect" Strangers - You know who you are, thank you

Understanding Employers, co-workers

Exceptional Doctors, Nurses

Childlife Specialists

You - You care enough to read this.

Thank you!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Congrats on finally getting the tube out. I bet Lisa is so happy. I am happy to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving today with your family and that your drive in was nice also. You asked in your previous post was we were thankful for, well for one I am thankful for my family, they are everything to me. But also I am thankful to your little girl Lisa, since I have heard of her story, I come on this blog several times a day to check on her. Also, I will Lisa and your family in my prayers. May God Bless you all.
