Happy Thanksgiving to all! I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
We just stayed home and our night nurse joined us for dinner. It was so nice to just relax and enjoy one another's company.
This year, I am so thankful that Dakin is still with us: breathing, eating and in general thriving--as much as a child with a neuromuscular disease can. I am thankful for his stubborness in the face of his disease. I am thankful that he has miraculously regained the use of his right arm, and is getting better at lifting his left one while sitting. I am thankful he has a group of nurses who not only take amazing care of him, they LOVE him. They are like family to us. I am also thankful for a medical team who is beyond compare.
We asked Dakin what he was thankful for. I scrolled through a list of things that he shook his head 'no' to until we got to his stroller. That's what he's thankful for this year...ah well.
