Thankful Thursday - Year 2 Week 1!

Today begins a second year of Thankful Thursday!  Hard to believe this link up has been going on that long!  Again, I am thankful for all of you for participating each week!

Today I am most thankful for the genetics clinic we connected with while we were went up to Children's Hospital Boston back in August.  They really have proven to have been the most beneficial specialty that we saw while we were there.  I am in touch with the geneticist fairly regularly.

My husband received a phone call a week or so back from their research center regarding getting our family into their program.  The paperwork arrived the other day.  There's a little packet for each member of the family.  There's a lot to read and comprehend.  The processing of this paperwork may involve us having to contact a medical professional so that we can be sure to understand everything properly.  It's not an answer, but it is a positive step.  It's the potential to become part of ongoing research in the field of genetics.  The family would be "de-identified" {read: anonymous} within the program, so if anything came back out of any research done on our samples, there'd be a certain protocol they'd have to follow to get that information back to us.  Like I said, it's the potential to be part of research, though it may have no benefit for Peyton directly.

I am really clinging to this "thankful in all circumstances" thing right now.  There's a whole other post where this is concerned, but right now, we're in the midst of an "all" circumstances moment in time.  You know...the kind where you just struggle to find the things to be thankful for in the midst of difficulty??  This isn't the place to get into the details, but suffice it to say, we are without our 40 hour a week nurse.  We had to let her go last Thursday.  I'm thankful for the nursing agency who is doing their best to try to fill in the gaps for us while they try to find a permanent replacement.  Praying that this process moves along swiftly and with excellent results in the end!

I look forward to reading your posts!  Thanks for linking up with me today!  OH...and please be sure to check out this giveaway I have going on over HERE.  Time's running out!
