Ten Things of Thankful, Week 32/2018

So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:

  • I am so thankful the waiting period for my inpatient stay was short.
  • My father says he will pick up my dirty laundry on Thursday, my mother offered to wash it for me, so I don’t have to drive by bus to a laundry. That helps a lot!
  • I visited my parents yesterday and talked about the fact that they will never be grandparents. My mother assured me that they are fine with that, and a huge weight was lifted from my heart.
  • My husband visited me today and brought our dogs with him. This meant so much to me, it meant driving a long way.
  • We had a nice time, walked the dogs and talked.
  • The patients here a so nice, they gave me a warm welcome. Everybody looks out for the others.
  • When I felt very useless and cried, because I am so far away from my pack and can’t help them, a nurse talked to me and reminded me that I am here to get better. And that I can’t help others when I am not well.
  • The staff here really takes care of the patients. We can talk to them nearly anytime.
  • Everything is organized very well in this hospital, so that no time is wasted in helping us to get better. That is a great relief for me, because I want to be well again soon.
  • I am feeling cautiously optimistic, and this surely beats feeling depressed!

  • The new hospital called and told me, I can be admitted Thursday. I am glad that there is no long waiting period.
  • They gave me almost a week to prepare everything, and I am glad for that. So my husband will have a clean house and clean clothes 😁.
  • My mother had surgery on her teeth on Friday. Everything went well, but it will take her some weeks to recover fully from this ordeal.
  • My sister in law gave birth to her child. Everybody is alright. That’s a good thing.
  • Had another ice cream yesterday after walking the dogs. It was delicious as well!
  • The shelter dog we take with us every Saturday could be adopted soon. We will miss him, but nothing beats a forever home!
  • Many shelter dogs in our local shelter have been adopted in the last weeks. That’s wonderful news! Maybe a few dogs from South Europe get a chance to be adopted now.
  • The weather cooled down, and everything is easier.
  • Our dog Sam is having a difficult time right now, but that somehow make us love him even more. We feel that he is upset, but he still is very affectionate to us. I am very grateful we have such a strong bond with him. And hopefully everything is back to normal soon.
  • Our cat Jackie enjoys the cooler weather as well. She snuggles up to her humans more often than in the heat. Everybody enjoys this very much!

  • I am so glad I have nice summer clothes that make me look good and are comfortable in the warm weather.
  • I am thankful for those who play words with friends with me, even though I am often slow to respond. It’s good for my brain, and fun.
