Today was a good day

Relief washed over me when I heard the news. When my husband came home from taking Ryan to the doctor’s this morning, he told me that Ryan is doing 100 percent better than yesterday. I guess the virus is taking its course and the therapy we’ve been doing is working.

Ryan’s breathing was less labored today than it has been in several days. He is still congested and coughing, but that will take some time to clear. The good news is that he can breathe and we don’t have to worry. He’s going to be fine.

Of course, we knew he was going to be fine from the beginning. It’s just hard to keep remembering it while your child is hooked up to machines that monitor his vital signs.
After what we’ve been through during the last several days, today, we wanted to do nothing but hang out together.

And today was a good day.

Today we took the time to enjoy our family. We played, ate and napped together. We stayed in our pajamas all day and just had fun. It was a nice change of pace for all of us. On most days we are running around like crazy trying to keep a schedule and get things done that have to be done. Today we stopped and didn’t do anything we had to do, because the only thing we had to do was be thankful we were all together.

I was more than happy to be the bearer of good new this day. It is amazing how much a parent can love their child.
