Count Your Blessings...

I know I already posted today, but I just have to say how grateful I am. I am grateful for many things, but at the moment I am grateful for these little beauties right here:

These pills are called Sulfasalazine. These are the pills I take for Crohn's Disease. I have a massive bottle of them (it takes up a quarter of my purse). I take 6 pills a day. I sometimes forget how much these pills save me. I take them for granted and the wonderful life they have given me.

Well, on Saturday I asked Jesse to get them refilled for me, as I had 3 doses left. He called me and told me that my prescription had expired. Well, as it was the Holiday weekend, that meant that I couldn't get a new one until Tuesday (today). So I have taken the pills sparingly and tried to make them last for the last 3 days. As of today I am not feeling so hot (but not horrible). I called my doctor and they are going to get them filled for me right now.

Which brings me to another thing I am grateful for...my Doctor. Dr. Nelson has saved my life many a time, and he is a great friend in addition to all of the things he's done for me. I am so grateful that I found him and that he has been there for me thru so many rough times. He is the best.

I am just so glad that I live at a time where solutions are right at our fingertips. Not only do I have this medication, and a doctor who figured out that was the right medication for me, but I have so many people around me who take care of me. So, in conclusion, I am grateful.

Well that was just the sweetest email ever! I too am eternally grateful for Sulfasalazine AND for Todd (Dr. Nelson to others), without whom your pills wouldn't have saved you. The Lord truly blessed us to send him into our lives! That was a hellish few years before we found the solution, I myself never forget how terrible it was. I'm grateful you do though! My cutest tiny Chels! Love you!

You two...so cute. Thanks for the great post. I take things for granted too much.
