In Celebration of Nothing Wrong

Yesterday we took Gabrielle to the clinic. After phoning a nurse hotline for some tummy issues she seemed to be having, I decided to play it safe and deal with it sooner rather than later. I can’t tell you how relieving it is to go to the doctor and come out with no promise of a surgery.

A rather amusing thing though; Phoning a nurse hotline, giving the nurse Gabrielle’s care card number and hearing the intake of breath over the phone as the computer screen fills up with medical interventions, surgeries and information on medication this little one has been on, it made me smile and feel sad at the same moment.

Gabrielle’s feeling better today, though her energy level is a little lower than usual. Mostly I don’t think about her past surgeries day to day, but Gabrielle’s little friend is going in for heart surgery next week and my thoughts have been leaning toward that family as they anticipate, prepare, and try to enjoy these precious moments.

In celebration for Nothing Wrong, we spent the morning at the beach with a couple little friends. Gabrielle held hands with her bestie as they perused the beach for purple shells.

I watched her explore and I found myself very thankful.

    I pop into your blog every now and then. I love your attitude and I super love that you celebrated and called it Nothing Wrong Day. Awesome mama.

    On another note, I think I emailed you in the past and told you about my dream to live aboard with our young family. We are on our way(!!) we just bought a smaller version of the boat we intend to go on-a Bayfield 23! Are you guys considering moving back to your boat?

    Take care, Stephanie

    • That is awesome Stephanie! Are you going to live on your small boat? We sold our big boat and we have a 25 ft C&C sailboat which we will NOT live on!:) But we will sail in it as often as possible. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Yay for NOTHING!!!! Huzzah!
