So as most people know I work in a hospital. My job is registration, typically I work in radiology but I occasionally frequent the lab when someone is on vacation or has a day off. For the most part my patients are "healthy", yes they have a temporary issue requiring x-rays or lab work. But I also have quite a few patients that come in because of cancer or other more perminent issues.
In the past two days I have seen more than my share of children. Children who are terminal or who were born with physical and mental disabilities. Having seen two today alone has brought me to tears because I am so lucky and blessed.
I have the most beautuiful amazing HEALTHY little boy! Joey is my life and I am so grateful that he is healthy and that he does not have to go through the pain of the testing I see these children go through. And as a mother, the biggest thing that we want to do for our children is keep them happy and safe and keep them from pain. These parents I see are so strong FOR their children. To know that there is nothing they can do to take the pain away and yet keep a happy face on for their baby.
I can't imagine what they are going through but I know how blessed I am and pray that my baby is never in any pain that Mommy's kisses can't take away or make better.
Ok...crying now...need to get back to work. Just wanted to say how thankful I am for the blessings in my life.
