The Good and the Bad

Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tiffany had an appointment with Doctor Stinnet the other day. As expected, there wasn't a lot that came from it except that her platelet count has skyrocketed. Which is great news. It came in at 274 - which is so much better than the 60 she was at two months ago. So if nothing else, at least her platelets are much better which means lots of different things, mostly, that bleeding shouldn't be an issue going forward.

We continue to be grateful for the blessings of being were we are today - not in a hospital, not having to combat a life threatening illness, or at least, not now. We don't really know what the future holds. But we do know of many others who are fighting. Though I don't feel right about putting their names out there for the cyber-world to know, at least without their authorization, suffice it to say that we are praying for many others out there. And we hope that you are too. There is much good that is brought about because of so much bad that is out there. We hope that you take some time from your busy schedules to offer yourselves, your time, your talents to help those out there that need it. Not only because we know how much it helped us, but because we know that by helping somebody in need, gives you additional insight into the good things this world has to offer.

We continually thank the Heavens for the good friends and family that we have, who stood by us and were willing to do whatever it took to make our life a little better.

I think that is Christianity at it's heart.
