Thankfull Thursday Thirteen

Well, for once this will be an easy 13 things to think of! (MomBean's gonna help with the details.) I'm dedicatin' this TT to my BabyBean and her past week.

I'm thankful for:
1. Bay District Volunteer Fire Dept., for getting here in 4 minutes.

2. The kind EMT's who treated BabyBean with lots of love and care.

3. The lack of police out on Rt. 235....you know you were in HeBean's car, remember?

4. The paramedics that were already there when the ambulance drove up.

5. That's it's only an 18 minute flight to D.C. (And that MomBean didn't throw up during it.)

6. Children's Hospital-it's one of the best places she could have gone to.

7. None of BabyBean's joints were affected, so she didn't have to worry about physical therapy.

8. All of the nurses that helped care for BabyBean while she was in the surgical unit.

9. The burn nurse who finally told the doctors that BabyBean was going to go home.

10. Tylenol-MomBean had a 5 day migraine until she got to bring BabyBean home.

11. HeBean, who drove KidBean and himself 2 hours each way to visit. And kept the house goin'.

12. My Milliecat, for keepin' evfurone updated on things.

13. All of YOU! Seriously, I don't think MomBean and I could have even guessed at the amount of love and support from evfuryone. To say we're touched is putting it lightly. Thank you all from the bottom of my furry heart.

BabyBean still has a journey for her recovery, but it's all external. As MomBean said, 'the inside is still the same, the outside is just under construction for a bit.' She's my trooper, though. The only thing MomBean has to worry about now is the pending bill. So she finished her etsy shop-it's not finished and is really rough, but she wanted to do something to help.

Those are all good things to be thankful for! I am so happy that BabyBean is going to be okay and that she's home again. I will continue to keep her in my prayers throughout her recovery.

Your mom's sock-cats look great! She is very talented. :) Being Canadian, I tend to forgot how expensive health care can be in other parts of the world. I will see if I can get my mom to crochet a snuggle to auction off for BabyBean.

Monty this is a wonderful list and sort of helps us to know where in the world you are if you went to the DC Children's hospital.

We are furry happy that Babybean didn't have to spend lots of time in the hospital. Mum said when she was little wafer she spent 5 days in hospital after bonking her head bad. Long before days of hellycopters to fly people too.

Mum says she hopes that your insurance will cover most of all of this.

I'm so glad BabyBean is back home and doing well! We were all so worried when we heard about it and you must have had a stressful week! Take some rest, relax a little and know that prayers and purrs are still going up for you and BabyBean. :)

Thank goodness Babybean is going to be OK. She probably won't even remember it when she gets older.

That is a great list Monty Q mom. You have included everyone that helped you and your wee girl. I know they will all be so happy to know you have your girl home safely.

We are lucky in New Zealand too. Our healthcare is free and our town has free ambulance and helicopter rescue. We know it costs lots of moneys where you live.

I am saving my moneys for a some millies raffle tickets so we can help you all out.

GASP! Thank you for setting the Etsy setting so you can ship international. My Mum went to get Pixie Kitty and she's gone, she's been sold! Sigh, perhaps you will make one one day that has some orange in it, I shall keep checking back.
