Record Day!

Today is a record day!

A record for what you might say?

Well, this happens to be the longest stretch of time that Rickie has not coughed!

My mind allows me to think about other things-maybe for an hour or two. But, this is huge for me. Almost like Rickie is normal. Mind you, he has treatments everyday still for 30 minutes at a time. Yet, this is all doable. He's able to run and play with his friends, laugh without coughing up a lung! (figuratively speaking of course) haha

We have so much to be thankful for. We never appreciated how precious our health was until it's taken away. Or have a child with a life shortening disease and see how quickly you appreciate good health.

I am thankful for everyday that we can love, laugh and play and build memories. I hope that everyone that reads this post is thankful for something in their life...(I'm sure they are)

I just have to be reminded, at times to take the good with the bad, and move forward always smiling and to be thankful.

Love you guys,


Six people that I am very thankful for!
