My Love/Hate Relationship with the Texas Medical Center

This view is so familiar to so many friends and family.  I hate when this is our daily and reality.  But I thank God that we are in driving distance of this amazing place.

My mom was in the hospital for 3 months before she died.   Drew was hospitalized twice for 5 weeks each time he had an LVAD implanted.  My cousin Ralph was down the road at Herman for weeks and weeks.   The Texas Medical Center has been vital to my family for quite some time.
Drew has been back in the hospital since last Thursday for an infection in his blood.  Not a huge problem for most people but with an LVAD it’s a problem that must be dealt with quickly and throughly.  
I remembered with this hospital stay how much I’ve come to LOVE routine every day existence.  I am reminded what a blessing ordinary can be.   

However, every time I see this

I know we are all in very good hands medically.

Our family, church family and my FTL sisters pray over us continually and for that I am more than grateful.

When your day to day life feels boring and ordinary, stop a moment and offer up a grateful prayer
